The Primary School Art and Craft Section of the Jersey Eisteddfod have joined with co-sponsor Deutsche Bank to promote the use of recycled materials.

Section Chairman, Wilma Allan said, “As in previous years each School may enter fifteen pieces of 2D work and ten pieces of 3D work. This year one of the 3D pieces could be made from recycled materials. A special award donated by Deutsche Bank will be given to the winner.”

The Adjudicator for the Primary School Art Section this year is John Binet- Fauvel, who specialises in using recycled electric wire from slot machines, electric motors etc., and transforms it to make the most amazing pieces of art. His work has been exhibited both in the UK and abroad.

Last year 29 Primary schools entered over 575 pieces of their pupils’ art work in the Creative Arts Section of the Jersey Eisteddfod which is held at the RJA & HS headquarters in Trinity.

Deutsche Bank has always been actively involved in both the Festival of Performing Arts held in November and the Festival of Creative Arts held in March of each year.

Sari Cuming, Marketing Manager for Deutsche Bank said, “Deutsche Bank has a keen interest in the environment and also supports Green Day and Jersey Environmental Week. By offering this special prize the Bank hopes to promote awareness of the issues of sustainability of our environment whilst helping to educate the children and young people of our community.”
