Sixhills

The local LA decided to revamp this small park in the middle of Grimsby, and we were asked to devise the project, working with the local primary school.
We held design workshops in school to get themes and ideas, and from the many models which the children made a small group of mums came up with 4 themes.
We held a making workshop with these mums where models were made, and meanwhile the children were making displays to try and sell their idea. Local houses were leafletted to ask residents to come and see the exhibition and vote.
The theme of 'Play' won the vote, and so the bench and 5 sculptures for the fence were made.
We then had a very happy day on site erecting the sculptures and making slabs to go round the bench.
(there are pics - do wait for them...)
