It’s Stoneheinz! Children recreate famous images using beans on toast in food bank fundraiser

  • Sculptures crafted using simple dish by GCSE pupils at Frome College, Somerset
  • They were asked to plate their beans on toast in an ‘exciting and imaginative way’
  • Gil Privett won contest with his Tchaikovsky-inspired swans on a lake of beans
  • School donated the winner’s height in baked bean tins – 15 in all – to a food bank

For centuries, archaeologists have puzzled over how Stonehenge was built. Turns out all you need is a toaster and possibly a tin opener.

But quite what our prehistoric ancestors would have made of this beans on toast version of the 5,000-year-old Wiltshire monument is anyone’s guess.

It was just one of the sculptures crafted using the simple dish by GCSE pupils at Frome College in Somerset. 

They were asked to plate their beans on toast in an ‘exciting and imaginative way’.

The 14-year-old also built ‘Stonehenge’ (pictured above) and has spent lockdown studying at home while parents Hester, 45 and Jon, 48, work at their bronze foundry

And Gil Privett won the contest by fusing high culture and everyday nosh with his Tchaikovsky-inspired swans on a lake of beans.

The 14-year-old – who also built ‘Stonehenge’ and has spent lockdown studying at home while parents Hester, 45 and Jon, 48, work at their bronze foundry – used muffin cases to bake the swans. 

‘It was just having a play with what we had at home in the kitchen, really,’ he said. ‘They took about 40 minutes to make.’

The school donated the winner’s height in baked bean tins – 15 in all – to a food bank following the contest, which also produced a beans on toast Nessie, a pirate rowing a boat and a spooky spider.  

A spokesman said: ‘We are delighted with the effort and enthusiasm shown by them all.’
