We were delighted to be invited to the 10th Lynden Sculpture Garden Winter Festival for two weeks in January 2020.

Families from all around the local area came to make all sorts of wonderful snow creations with us. This was a great event and we loved it.
LAND Sand stone festival bridlington, yorkshire, england - september 2019
Fellow artist and friend James Brunt invited us to his new event LAND SAND STONE in Bridlington, Yorkshire, a three day Land Art festival in September 2019. The sun shone and it was warm and hundreds of families came out to join us in making sand art and stone stacks on the beach.

Muncaster festival, West cumbria, england - may 2019

COOP cultura for kids, sicily, italy - May 2019
The Coop Cultura Land Art for Kids project in the historic town of Agrigento in Sicily finally comes to an end after six months. We were delighted to revisit and to see all the friends we had made in the previous December again. It was a delightful project that everyone really gained a lot from. This one will live long in our memories.

In chilly weather several teachers, forest school leaders, artists and students joined us for our very popular Natural Art Pracitioner's course in the fabulous location of Middlewood, near Wray in Lancashire. These are always a lot of fun and everyone goes home with a big smile on their face.
