It’s great to see thecut benches we produced being used to educate and inform the politicians of our future.
We were asked by our friends at Guy Fox to print and cut to shape, the elements needed to build cartoon style benches from the Houses of Lord and Commons.
They had to be sturdy enough to stand up to the rigours that only Junior School students can inflict. So we used 10mm thick black Amari boards laminated with colourful vinyl prints, which were thencut to shape with a Zund router which accurately followed the design with its camera system.
These props are being used in a “How a Law is Made” workshop to help Year 4 students at Snowsfields PS to re-enact the debate that led to the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act of 1919, with help from Blackstone volunteers.
