Today, a number of Year 5 children accompanied Mr Griffiths and Mrs Charlesworth to Wolverhampton University’s Science Park where they listened to talk from a world renowned sculptor called Willard Wigan. Wigan, who grew up in Wolverhampton, creates microscopic sculptures, most of which fit into the eye of a needle. The children were amazed to hear about how the sculptures were created and some of the things that Willard uses as his tools (including his own eyelashes!!). They had the opportunity to ask questions and view some of his artwork. The children were inspired by his story and the message that you really can achieve anything if you put your mind to it.
