Windows in the Woods
Parklands Woods was requisitioned in WWII by the army to camouflage their tanks and guns. Whilst these have long gone, the concrete bases of some of the barracks can still be found.
Ivy-clad trees have grown up around one of the bases and this has created a delightful green room that is often filled with bird song. The Art Festival Team felt that this area deserved to be brought to everyone's attention so we decided to create an art installation with a peaceful seating area with some "stained glass" panels for people to enjoy.
The panels are under construction and already look gorgeous. We held the first of several workshops recently and will be holding more in the coming weeks. Also below is a photo of our trial at hanging a panel.
The Windows in the Woods installation will be open throughout the Arts Festival weekend - follow the signs and enjoy sitting a while in this lovely space.
