Young Arts- Mosaic panels for Abbey 900
Tuesday 03 April 2018

42 mosaic panels were completed by pupils at local schools and youth organisations in Cirencester. The panels were designed and created by the young people under the guidance of Debbie Stirling a local mosaics artist. During the summer and winter of 2017 schools were visited and their puplils invited to design and create up to three panels depicting events and activities at the medieval Abbey of St. Mary Cirencester which celebrated its 900th anniversary in 2017.

The Arts Societies Cirencester and Corinum  each contributed £600 towards the cost of the project with a further  £1500 being granted by the Ernest Cook Foundation Trust and £600 being raised by Debbie's students.

The panels are permanently displayed on a wall in the Abbey Grounds. The "unveiling " took place on Sunday 1st July 2018.  Over 100 people attended the event.
