27th Sept 2019 – Yr10 Fine Art – Trip to view “ The Knife Angel”

27th Sept 2019 – Yr10 Fine Art – Trip to view “ The Knife Angel”…Miss Beard and Miss Brown took a group to view the Knife Angel sculpture, which came about due to the Knife amnesty…

The almost eight-metre sculpture took two years to make, and was a collaboration between artist Alfie Bradley and the British Ironwork Centre. More than 100,000 surrendered and confiscated knives were supplied by the 43 police forces across the UK including Kent, in the hopes this would help to reveal the scale of the problem.

Alongside being able to visit the sculpture, Rochester Cathedral have organised an exhibition and free sessions with local schools to encourage children to think about the dangers of carrying a knife.
