Scool/Community Mosaic Art

Ilfracombe community project


The Lasting Memorial in Runnymede Gardens, Ilfracombe, North Devon. Dedicated to the men who gave their lives in World War One, and all those who lost their lives in conflict.


The Mosaic. Local artist Kim Sayer of Magical designed the memorial mosaic and ran a community mosaic workshop for local volunteers who wished to contribute to this mosaic piece. The design depicts Ilfracombes rolling hills, the sea, seagulls and poppies. Kim said “I wanted the mosaic to be colourful, to reflect Ilfracombes colourful community”. The copper poppies where also integral to Kims original design.  Members from the community worked with Kim during a one day workshop but the whole thing has been hours in the making with Magical Mosaics donating this time as a contribution to the memorial project. Around the central stone and the edge are beach pebbles. The wording says ‘Ilfracombe Says Thank You 1914-2014’. Above the mosaic on the stone are three copper poppies, a gift from the mosaic artist.    

Sue Garwood of Ilfracombe said, “The memorial is more beautiful than any of us could have imagined and I am sure the townspeople will be proud”.

The original wishing well was filled in, a standing stone from a local source later erected and Magical Mosaics were commisioned for the design and completion of the mosaic memorial.

Woodlands Park Primary School mosaic project

Mosaic piece created with the pupils of Woodlands Park Primary School in Ivybridge, Devon to commemorate 25 years of the school opening. The school ran a competition for the design. It was to reflect what their school means to them. From all the lovely ideas a winning design was chosen and the final design based on this. 

The children were all involved in workshops with Kim to create the Mosaic. The pupils were enthusiastic and worked hard. The finished piece looks amazing and hangs in the  school reception for everyone to enjoy.
The project was funded by the schools PTA and Tesco’s fund for schools.

Commemorative mosaic art project in progress with pupils contributions in the form of rainbow edging, butterflies, tree leaves, pebbles and catapillars.
