Last Tree Dreaming
July 2014 to present
I am currently involved in a project with artist Barry Cooper, working with students from Frome Community College to create an artwork from a 20 metre fallen oak tree in the grounds of the National Trust Stourhead Estate, Wiltshire. Ultimately, subject to funding, the tree will be transported to Frome and erected to stand upright in the grounds of the Community College.
