In 2021, seventy year 10 students from Channing School and Parliament Hill School worked with Lauderdale House’s artist-in-residence Alison Lam to create 600 ceramic and 70 bronze hand sized pieces inspired by the collections of plants and artefacts of James Yates, a Victorian resident of Lauderdale House, and the natural environment of Waterlow Park. 

Each student created multiple artworks in ceramic and bronze which were put together to create 4 larger pieces, exhibited on the Lauderdale House Tea Lawn and around Waterlow Park from 18th - 27th June 2021.
