Following a year-long project, a group of students with an average age of thirteen, from Royal Harbour Academy and Chatham and Clarendon Grammar in Ramsgate, Kent, produced Pugin inspired tile designs to be installed on 32 risers of Kent Steps in Kent Place.

Funded by the Historic England Heritage Schools Programme as part of the Ramsgate Heritage Action Zone and coordinated by Ramsgate Town Team, the students studied Pugin and learned about his life and creations at school and then visited Pugin’s family home and church, The Grange and St Augustine’s before taking preliminary sketches and photos of interesting features that they would later use in their designs.

With over 90 designs submitted, the three judges had a difficult choice but were mindful that the contemporary designs had to complement each other and demonstrate that they were inspired by Pugin.  Ultimately, 23 designs were chosen and extra versions were created in various colours. 

The designs were reproduced and fired onto porcelain tiles by Tile Fire Ltd and installed by SVK Stone & Ceramics Specialists in March 2020, just before ‘lockdown’.  Once the social gathering embargo is lifted, we will be presenting the proud students with a certificate and a framed version of their tile designs, which were generously donated by Tile Fire Ltd.

£2.50 of each sale goes to the school of the student who designed the tile.
