The Walk of Art takes place in Horsforth, Leeds, on the 4th and 5th of July 2015. The weekend is dedicated to bringing together local artists from various practices to display their work in shop windows and public spaces across the area, as well as providing practical workshops for the general public to get involved in. Along with exhibiting some of our furniture in Horsforth Library, we have also teamed up with The Froebelian School in Horsforth as a joint project.
On 2nd June 2015, primary school pupils from The Froebelian School visited our workshop where we introduced them to the world of furniture making and gave demonstrations using the lathe as part of our project, which is to build a chair with the school pupils. In addition to this, the children will also be making their own slot-together MDF sculptures that we will provide the components for. Following their visit to our workshop, we will be visiting the school next week to help the pupils assemble their chair and sculptures, which will also be displayed at the Walk of Art this July.
