About this project

Working with two schools with pupils with Special Educational Needs. We explored the gardens, working creatively and collaboratively, elements were prepared to be part of two permanent sculptures fabricated for the gardens. Another forged stainless steel piece was the culmination the drawing and model making developed during the Residency. The project also involved tours of the annual sculpture exhibition and workshops with adults and families.
