So what do you do when it's sunny but cold, the leaves are falling & you have a spare day?
I am a bit of an Andy Goldsworthy fan (& so is my Dad). A few years ago we decided to have a go at some environmental sculpture ourselves. We dressed up warmly, took plenty of good things to eat & some bits of board from my Dad's shed. I think my Mum thought we'd both gone a bit mad.
We chose a large piece of woodland, checked with the forest ranger & set to work...
It was much harder than it looked. First there was the decision of what to make & then how to make it.
Precision was difficult to achieve...
OK, so we were basically playing but it was a brilliant day & I have yet to meet someone who doesn't like a freebie.
When I was a child I would have loved this sort of thing. It's the woodland equivalent of sandcastles but without the gritty sandwiches for lunch.
Might it, perhaps, encourage some winter-haters (Emma!?) to get wrapped up & produce their own Goldsworthy project?
Later that evening when we'd warmed up we did wonder if anybody would ever find our pieces of art (& what they would think)
