Y9 and Y10 trip to Damien Hirst’s workshop and studios

Our Y9 and Y10 students were offered an incredible, once in a lifetime opportunity to see inside the inner-workings of one the most famous living artists in the world. We were welcomed by Damien himself at his Gloucestershire studio. He also took us to his foundry to see the construction of some monumental bronzes. The group were invited into Damien’s beautiful home for lunch and to see his personal collection of art. The icing on the cake was the chance to create spin paintings of our own on purpose-built spinning machines. A huge thank you from all of us for extending such a warm welcome and allowing us such incredible insight into the processes that are involved in creating this fantastically varied body of work.
