In 1981, when the extension to the Rooty Hill School of Arts was completed, a community wall was made. The wall was made up of Raku fired bricks which were painted by members of the local Rooty Hill community whose families had been in the area since the School of Arts was built around 1905.
The raku firing was done in conjunction with BACG. Member Fay Currie was involved in the process.
We are currently looking for more information about the history of BACG and would love to hear from anyone who knows more about the community wall at Rooty Hill School of Arts. Was your family involved? Did you help with the firing?
