MOSAIC artist Becky Paton unveiled her latest work this week, a joint project with pupils at Beckley C of E Primary School.

The former red telephone box has been converted into a miniature art gallery and decorated with its first exhibition – marine life mosaics created by the school entitled Telequarium.

Year 5 pupil Leila Branfoot, 10, said: “Everybody in the school did a bit each and I did a turquoise fish with orange eyes. The mosaics looked really good.

“Our exhibition is going to be in there until September.”

Nine-year-old Lucy Walton, in Year 4, added: “Becky showed us how to make mosaics and making them beautiful was really fun.”

The phone box will be used to host other exhibitions.

A renowned Oxford-based mosaic artist, Ms Paton runs regular mosaic workshops in Beckley Village Hall.”
