The Story Tree
Valleypark Community Centre, Burdiehouse
Spring 2016
Age group: 4-13 and 70+


In a series of around 11 workshops together with youth groups, the 50+ group and the womens group, we made three sculptures; a tree, a moon and a sun, to decorate the kids play corner in the cafe/foyer area of the community centre. The tree is made from ply wood with felted flowers and leaves, whilst the sun and moon were constructed from willow and tissue paper then painted. In this project we explored a variety of different materials and techniques; the childrens groups did most of the willow construction and decorating the structures they had made, whilst all groups had a go at felting various forms to decorate the tree.
