Transforming unloved spaces…

A 6m diameter beaten earth circle will be surrounded by 6x6m tall carved wooden posts, each tapering away to the top. Above this meeting place will be suspended a glimmering cloud of small metal disks. These will reflect the light and make a gently audible sound as they shimmer in the breeze. 

This enchanted clearing will be further enhanced by a variety of wooden ‘boulders’. These will sit around the edges of the earth circle, providing seating for beguiled passers-by and entranced playgroup attendees alike.
