An art project by Diss Decorative and Fine Arts Society (Diss DFAS) has seen a stained glass window produced and presented in celebration of Burston Primary School.

Local artist Teri Lockton has been financially supported by Diss DFAS over the past 12 months as part of its Young Arts projects for south Norfolk, to introduce pupils at the school to the medium. Working with eight and nine-year-olds, the panel, which features a maypole from Burston and three chickens that were at the school, has been designed and created by the children, who have also been supported by the Friends of Burston School group. A further two panels will be produced later this year. Mrs Lockton, who has been producing stained glass windows for 25 years, said: “I think they loved it. I think it is an opportunity to handle a medium they would not normally deal with.” Pictured are Burston Primary School pupils Poppy Calton, Tyler Meen, Barnaby Greive, Sable Hines and Charlie-Jack Wright Nichols with Mrs Lockton.
