William Lamb competition

The Friends of William Lamb Studio is about to host the 32nd annual sculpture competition for children in Montrose and the surrounding area.

Entrants have already been selected from primary schools in Montrose, Ferryden, Hillside and Montrose Academy.

They will gather at the Scout Hall, Queen Street, on Saturday morning, and will be given one hour to model a clay sculpture to their own design.

They will then be offered refreshments while judging takes place. Parents will have a chance to view all the sculptures.

Winners in each age group will receive prizes and the overall winner will receive the inscribed Lamb Medal.

After photographs the children will take their sculptures home. William Lamb was born in 1893 and despite suffering serious hand wounds in the First World War became an internationally recognised artist and sculptor.

Opening hours of the William Lamb Studio are: Tuesdays to Saturdays, from July 2 until the end of August, 2 to 5pm.
