Thanks to a generous grant, garbage will be transformed into art on Great Britain’s south coast. According to This Is South Devon, “Brixham Adult and Community Learning Centre’s disabled group, ACE, has been awarded a £7,416 grant from the South West Foundation. This will enable them to offer two community workshops creating a Trail of Recycled Art In The Landscape (TRAIL) in June. ACE members will demonstrate their abilities by working with professional artists Vivienne Turner and Petra Turner to lead the workshops.
“The public are invited to join in….
“On Wednesdays, Vivienne Turner will be creating a large willow fish for Teignmouth seafront by making willow panels and then weaving waste plastics into the form…. On Fridays, Petra Turner will be creating seagulls made from wire coat hangers and plastic bottles filled with the stuff they scavenge using textile techniques….
“TRAIL is five years old this year and to celebrate, along with the established sculpture trail, it is launching a new initiative, an exciting extravaganza of wearable art/sculpture inspired by concern for the environment.”
