Nightingale Project

Artist Andy Singleton worked with a group of school children from The Waterton Academy Trust to create an installation of 150 birds. Pupils from across the Trust made their own birds, following a demonstration by Andy. Hundreds and hundreds of amazing birds were hatched and it was a difficult job to select just 150, to represent 150 years since Charles Waterton's death. As part of the pupil's experience they had a tour of the museum displays and a special peak behind the scenes. They helped to select the birds and worked with Andy in creating a swirling flock.
