You may have seen from our previous post on the prepping for the Christmas wreath-making workshop.

Art in the Park artists Andrea Sinclair and Bill Hudson, supported by several volunteers, ran a drop-in Christmas wreath-making workshop last saturday in the AIP studios. Using all natural or recycled materials such as clippings of plants such as Holly, Laurel and Ivy, provided by Southwark Parks, pine cones and seed pods and colourful and glittering fabrics, threads and wires.

There was a good turnout, with lots of families and a sizeable group of Young Friends of Burgess Park. Using the same materials people made large decorations to hang on the outdoor Christmas Tree outside Chumleigh Cafe and wreaths to take away for their own homes.

Here for more pictures.

You may have seen from our previous posts that Art in the Park’s artist Bill Hudson and his trusty assistant Brian (one of our regular volunteers) have been working on a Christmas Tree planter for Chumleigh Cafe’s Christmas Tree. Today, it was finally put up! Bill Hudson, local sculptor Will and Quadrant Park Manager Graham had to lift  the 5 metre tree with a hoist before slotting it carefully into the metal tube affixed inside the planter. It was then filled up with soil and moved to the corner outside Chumleigh Cafe.

More pictures to come when it’s decorated with lights, trinkets and bobbles.

It’s the second day and the Christmas tree planter that AiP artist Bill Hudson is working on is nearly complete.

The timber  used is tanalised (dipped in a chemical to preserve the wood for longer) and is possibly spruce or pine.

With only finishing touches such as sanding and possibly staining left.  When completed, the planter is expected to carry the weight of a five metre Christmas tree, adorned with many twinkles and trinkets. We can’t wait to see that!
