Darrell Wakelam is an art practitioner, teacher, and trainer based in Lyme Regis in Dorset. He has spent over 30 years working creatively with children and young people, providing popular art workshops nationwide in schools and museums, and at theatres and events. Darrell creates 3D models, masks, and sculptures using cardboard and other paper based recycling from simple 'one-piece' projects to larger, more complex sculptures and groups pieces. He is also the author of the art techniques book 'Art Shaped', a comprehensive guide to 3D making published by Bloomsbury Education.
Darrell is inspirational. He has worked at Old Church for the past 11 years. The quality of art work the children produce, with his guidance, is outstanding and our corridors resemble an art gallery of masterpieces. The children and staff love working with him and it is the best money we spend all year! - Davina Clacy - Head Teacher - Old Church Primary School
