40 people, 46 weeks, 152 wheelbarrows of cob, 47.5 metres of larch poles, and 98 hand-made ceramic tiles later – you can visit the LandWorks Timeline!
We’re holding an open afternoon at LandWorks on Friday 27th May 2-4pm, can you join us to celebrate the finishing of the sculpture? If so, email email@example.com with your full name by Wednesday 25th May – note that you must be a registered LandWorks supporter in order to access the site – I will do this when you email, but it is essential that I know you’re coming.
This project has only been possible thanks to the help of so many, but notably:
Arts Council England and Plymouth University‘s ‘Plymouth Fund’ team for funding the project.
The 15 men serving sentences at HMP Channings Wood or in the community.
Plymouth University art students Paige, Hannah, and Megan for tirelessly and enthusiastically cobbing in the freezing cold and painting many, many tiles.
Julie Taylor for firing the many, many, tiles – many more than I think we both anticipated.
John from Fine Turf for donating material for the green roof.
Jakob Benjamin for frame designing and Simon Shields for planning the roof structure before the money came in, and for persevering working outside through what has to be one of the wettest winters on record.
Julie, Joyce, and Tina from Plymouth University for helping with all the evaluation questions.
Chris Parsons for providing moral support every step of the way, and who, without, the entire LandWorks project would not be possible.
