Art in the Woods

Children from Ashton in Makerfield near Wigan took part in an Easter arts workshop with Stephen Charnock to design and create a pebble mosaic for a woodland setting near their homes.  The mosaic is located at the entrance to  Skitters Wood,  a much cherished piece of ancient woodland nestled between the town and the M6 motorway.

Stephen worked with Karin Dagnall, a Freind of Ashton volunteer, to organise the project and was keen to see the children get hands on experience throughout the making process.

The mosaic was featured in the Wigan Evening Post. Follow this link to read the whole articlewigan evening post 30-4-11
