IT’S quite a catch for students at the Freeman College in Sheffield.
Under the guidance of pewter tutor Danny Rowen, they have spent over a year making a 4ft high koi carp made from brass, copper and pewter, which is going on display in the Butcher Works Gallery off Arundel Street in the city centre.
Spokesman David Heugh said it was “stunning. From a modest initial concept, the fish has just grown and grown and Danny and the students have painstakingly created the hundreds of metal scales and fins and the carp.”
The college educates young people with autistic spectrum conditions.
“This has been a perfect exercise for our students because it links numeracy, literacy, hand and eye co-ordination and lots of patience,” said David.
