Sarah’s take on Ten Lords a-Leaping was to transform them into ten leaping gingerbread lords. Sarah visited her old school, Oughton Primary & Nursery Schoolin Hitchin, to run a workshop with year 6 pupils for inspiration. She asked each of them to design their own leaping gingerbread lord, which they loved, and has combined elements from their designs into each of the lords featured on the Snowman. The design is very festive and also ties in nicely with Sarah’s work, which often features food and sweet treats.
