School pupils make artwork for steel centenary

Have your say

School pupils in Sheffield are making artwork inspired by the centenary celebrations of stainless steel.

Sheffield Hallam University is running two design projects for schools and colleges to mark the 100-year anniversary celebrations of Harry Brearley’s ground-breaking discovery.

Students must design awards and trophies for their schools which will be made by Sheffield Hallam’s metalwork experts and exhibited in the Sheffield Institute of Arts gallery during the university’s Creative Spark exhibition in June.

Metalwork lecturer Jeff Durber said: “Students have come up with some fantastic ideas, including an art award and a student of the year trophy.

“It’s interesting to see how they think about stainless steel.”
