Design A Sculpture Competition

Enjoy the pencil sketches shortlisted

Shortlisted designs

Six lucky finalists from School will decide on the overall design for the Robert Welch Designs cutlery sculpture to feature in the foyer of the Performing Arts Centre. A photograph of the pencil sketches from each student appear above giving a flavour of the designs.

Over 300 students entered the competition to draw a design that represented the performing arts or their local community. Just before lockdown, the panel of judges: Alice Welch, Kit deBretton Gordon, Michael Allchin, John Sanderson and Edward Bennett, selected six ideas that will be further developed under the guidance of Kit - Head of Design at Robert Welch. The panel of judges were ‘overwhelmed by the creativeness and the talent from all the entries at all levels. We were looking for pieces that had some connection to the performing arts or the local area.  Considering the space that the final piece would be in we were looking for something that had a sense of movement that could be viewed from different angles and viewpoints.’  

When it is safe to do so, each finalist will have the opportunity to spend some time with Kit at Robert Welch to further develop their ideas. Once a design has been selected, it will then be turned into a sculpture that will be installed in the Performing Arts Centre for everyone to enjoy - a permanent celebration of creativity and community. We plan to find a sponsor to fund the cost of making the sculpture, so please contact if you are interested in supporting this unique opportunity.
