Charter of the Forest inspired exhibition hosted by Lincoln Cathedral

Giles Exhibition

Lincoln Cathedral recently hosted an art exhibition by Giles Academy, inspired by the 800th anniversary of Charter of the Forest 1217.

The exhibition, which ends on Thursday 16th November, includes fine art paintings, ceramics, mixed media sculptures and architectural model making together with photography and graphic design, created by year 7 to year 13 students from Giles Academy.

Giles Academy is a large secondary specialist visual arts school in the small village of Old Leake near Boston, Lincolnshire.

On Tuesday 14th November year 8 Bronze Arts Award students from Giles Academy lead a Matisse inspired art workshop ‘Forest Pathways’ for a local primary school in the Chapter House.  This collaborative work was enjoyed by all and the art will be on display at the school until the end of term.

The exhibition has been very well received by the public and has encouraged new audiences to visit the Cathedral.
