Avon Heath Country Park
Avon Heath Country Park is Dorset’s largest park and home to some of the rarest species in Britain. The Park is keen to engage young people in its conservational work and has designed a series of educational workshops – sponsored by ICM – to encourage their involvement. These workshops will be led by a sculptor who has been commissioned by the Park to create a number of stunning wooden sculptures – which will ultimately be inspired by the creative ideas and involvement of the schoolchildren.
On Wednesday 8 July, 15 children were given the exciting challenge of helping a professional artist create a sculpture of one of the local inhabitants of Avon Heath Country Park.
