Local art studios New Romney’s Teach Me having featured on BBC TV two weeks ago, has repeated the trick with ITV and Kent TV covering the unveiling of another mosaics project at Tenterden Railway Station. Pupils from nearby Homewood secondary school made the mosaic over several weeks at Teach Me promises before the mosaic was taken and mounted on an outside wall at the Railway.
The Mosaic was designed by Homewood’s Marnie and completed by groups of ten pupils at a time. The mosaic was unveiled at a ceremony by the Mayor of Tenterden, councillor John Crawford and the event was also watched by Mayor of New Romney Councillor Paul Thomas. Press were invited and two TV companies attended the event, along with other local people and station staff.
Teach Me had three artists in attendance, Studio founder Yolanda Houston and tutors Becky Blackmore and Danielle Virgo. Yolanda said: “It’s a wonderful community mosaic depicting some of the town’s most iconic features, including the railway”. The project was orchestrated as part of Generations Connect, a National Lottery-funded intergenerational project from CARM Romney Marsh and Romney Resource Centre.
