St John's CE Primary School

All 94 pupils at St John's CE Primary School in Nottingham contributed to this three-dimensional representation of the Temeraire.

Inspired by the fact that the great fighting ship was on its way to be broken up and the wood reused, the children wanted to make an artwork out of recycled materials.

An art student helped the children to realise their ideas. Plastic bags were knitted together using giant needles to make the wave in the foreground; the tug and houses were woven and collaged out of magazines and bin-liners; and the beads for the sun were made from recycled paper pulp.

As well as the theme of recycling, the pupils wanted their piece to reflect Turner’s preoccupation with colour, texture and depth.
