Wooden Fence at East Gore School

Never underestimate the generosity of a school community!  This fence was made out of off cuts donated by that community, saving loads of money on this art project.  My job as a community artist is to have an overview of both the finished design and the making but the students do the actual design and building.  They designed different objects based on the shapes of the timber off cuts and then built them using screws and nails and off cuts that were actually bigger than them!  This was a whole school project and they persevered through wind, rain and heat and created this fence to protect the new garden and orchard.
