Success! Hyde Park Community Orchard Artwork…

Last year myself and two other artists (Ann Gilligan and Richard Dawson) were successful in gaining a commission to create artwork (pending funding) for the Hyde Park Community Orchard in Hyde, Greater Manchester.  Just before Christmas we found out the Community Spaces funding bid had been successful and we have now started the project.

The artwork will include an outdoor classroom, a wildlife trail and an entrance feature all informed by work produced in sessions with local schools and community groups.  The final pieces will feature a number of different techniques and materials including wood, cast-stone and mosaics.

There are lots of other things happening in the Orchard so keep an eye on the Operation Farm blog for more details.  I’ll also be posting about the ‘art’ side of things regularly!
