New King’s School Deckchair
About the Deckchair
This deckchair has been designed by New King’s School as part of Deckchair Dreams, a fantastic public art adventure, to celebrate the rare and wonderful things of London’s eight Royal Parks. These 8-9 year olds visited the Peter Pan statue and the Flower Gardens in Kensington Gardens, then focused on the ornate Albert Memorial. The students used paints, pens and even gold leaf to recreate its opulence and then, in a final flourish, they wrote a song together about their experience!
In 2010, we invited five school groups in the UK and three groups in China to take part in. They visited their local Royal Park or the Shanghai Botanical Garden accompanied a professional artist, plus our education team and volunteers, to look at plants and trees and explore the similarities and differences between UK and Chinese parks and culture. After sketching in the parks, the pupils worked on their deckchair designs back in the classroom. Our judging panel then had the task of choosing a winner from each school to be part of the collection.
This was one of the winning designs. Made from a solid, sustainable Merpauh wood frame with a quality artist’s woven canvas, you can enjoy snoozing on these deckchairs for years to come.
