William Brookes School
To celebrate the connection of Much Wenlock with the founding of the modern Olympic Games through Dr William Penny Brookes, Craven Dunnill Jackfield were commissioned to produce 2 stunning ceramic tile murals each 7m x 2m to adorn both sides of a feature sculptural wall outside the entrance of the recently re-built William Brookes School.
Unveiled on July 13th 2012 by Phillip Dunne MP as part of the Much Wenlock Olympic inspired Public Art Trail the murals form the focal point to the new school entrance. Working in conjunction with Kier Construction, Shropshire Council, Meadow Arts and the School we produced a stunning artwork utilising almost 750 specially produced large ceramic tiles. The finished artwork is fully resistant to the worst of the UK weather and will be enjoyed by students, parents and the local community for many years to come.
Each tile has a unique reference to enable ease of on-site installation and utilising specially developed packaging in conjunction with our detailed key-planning system allowed the mural to be fixed and grouted by one installer in only 3 days.
