Sarah Jane Richards and myself were commissioned by Sefton Coast Landscape Partnership (SCLP)and funded by the Heritage Lottery, to produce a sculpture trail along 22 miles of the Sefton Coastline.
The six sculptures along the Sefton Coastal Path, were designed by us; the individual artworks contained within the sculptures were developed through a programme of art workshops with local hard-to-reach communities, creating a sense of ownership and pride.
Each offers a unique creative response to a different aspect of the coastal heritage, history or landscape, giving a creative and informative view of the coast.
Huge thanks go to all these groups:– Natural Alternatives, Go With The Flow and Free Flow art groups, Creative Alternatives, Bridge Inn Community Farm, Cambridge Road Children Centre and Brunswick Youth Club.
