Support the Plants!
No, not a new protest organisation, but the title of our great friend Mick Petts’ workshop here at Nant y Bedd on March 12th 2022.
Mick is the genius who designed and built – with a little help and hindrance from me – our natural swimming pond, designed and built Cedric our spectacular tree sculpture and did the original designs for the tree-house.
Mick is renowned for his works, particularly in the country parks of South Wales. His ‘Sultan the Pit Pony in Penallta Park is the largest earth sculpture in Wales and is made up of more than 60,000 tons of earth, rock and coal shale, celebrating the role of the pit ponies in the former coal mines.
Don’t worry, you won’t be expected to make anything like this on March 12th, but do expect something like these.
There are still a couple of places left for this fascinating day. See the details of the day here.
All materials will be provided – plus lunch! – just bring your ideas. Mick is a great teacher, so don’t be afraid!
