Working in Partnership with The Friends of the Fallowfield Loop, Sustrans and the local community Rachel created a series of pieces entitled ‘The Family’
“I was Inspired by The Fallowfield Loop, in particular one day I was sketching on site and a family came walking along that seemed to embody the perfect essence of what the Loop is about.”
This was the first time that Rachel started to produce figurative work.
The public were invited to go on a ‘Cycle for a site’ along the Loop to find the perfect spot to install the works.
“I applied for Funding from Awards for All (Lottery Funding) and I was able to run two very popular ‘Making sculpture using Nature’ workshops in Highfield Park and a separate Teachers workshop ‘The importance of exploration, discovery, failure and recovery’ that encourages pupils and teachers to learn from mistakes and enables schools to make sculptures in their own gardens and nearby parks.”
