“I found the ideas and concepts fascinating. It was a novel and unusual as well as beautiful use of materials. I was particularly impressed by the young people from Thomas Tallis School and have already been in communication with them regarding the work that they have done in their school so that we can some further ideas for our school.” Visitor to Wonderland in London
