The Shape Shed - Regeneration Sculpture Workshop


Successfully engaging residents of Chalkhill in North West London in a summer of positive ceative activity, a wide range of age groups attended. The 1960s 'Bison' high rise blocks were being replaced and the area transformed. Access to the builders yard provided raw materials and the reused site cabin provided a base from which we could expand and work on a large scale outside. The Project was repeated the following year. Artist Barabara Nicholls and several volunteers provided valuable assistance.
