I am currently working in Acton Park creating a Story telling seating area.
In celebration of the “Roots to the fruit project” as part of Black history month 2011.
I’ve been working with community elders and local children to create carved imagery for the Seating area.
The London Plane timber was donated by Ealing Council from a previously felled specimen.
The wood carves very well and has a distinctive grain pattern somtimes called lacewood due to its likeness to the patterns of lacework.
The project has been supported by Acton Arts Forum and The Apple Art block.
The work is to be unveiled on Nov 5th 2011, 2-5pm.
