We’ve recently had the arts festival again in Holmfirth and i took it upon myself to work again in wood. With a quick scribble on a piece of cardboard i launched myself again into the world of wood. I secretly quite enjoyed working in wood, especially with my ‘no rules’ policy of woodwork and the fact that i’ve bought myself a new chop-saw. The theme was ‘earth beneath our feet’ and i decided to make a giant mole. Collecting wood from various skips i soon had enough to make a start. I didn’t work with a school this time so i didn’t need to be too careful with the way i made the mole and Sky Blue helped keep me on track with the painting side of things. The piece itself is still in New Mill Community Garden because it had nowhere else to go.
