Glorious sunshine, cool fresh breeze – we couldn’t have wished for more conducive weather as we set about installing the fabulous new mosaic at Dearne Valley Park on Monday.
The mosaic has been a massive achievement for the young people who put their time and effort into producing drawings and creating the panels prior to installation. A number of them came down to site on Monday afternoon to see their mosaic masterpiece in its permanent new position at a key entrance to the nature park.
The young people put together their drawings, depicting life at Dearne Valley Park and they were sent to me at the studio, together with dimensions and a basic idea of format for the overall design. From this, I created a bespoke community mosaic kit, together with the design and full scale templates.
I was invited to take part in a full day of workshops at the Ozone centre at Barnsley Football Ground where we had a very jolly and highly productive day making up the panels. See earlier post for details
