We spent a creative afternoon in Glen Howe Park with a Transition Group of 16-24 year olds making natural sculptures inspired by Andy Goldsworthy. It was a fantastic few hours with everyone getting involved, supporting each other and surprising themselves by what they achieved.
Here are some of the comments made by the Transition Group members:
‘I really enjoyed working with everyone. Scavenging for useful items and working towards a shared goal. It was all awesome!’
‘Today has been inspiring and a change of environment. Something that I would not do everyday!’
‘Fun with nature, discovering creativeness, making time to make art.’
‘I initially thought that being outdoors for a few hours was going to be a bit outside of my comfort zone. I actually found it peaceful, calming and really enjoyable creating art from nature.’
‘…was better than expected. Not good at art but received help and my strange idea welcomed and accepted.’
