Let’s go play in the Forest.

We’re a week away from this year’s Forest of the Imagination extravaganza which – for six years now – has even the adults amongst us visiting parts of our creative and resourceful brain we haven’t set foot in for years.

From June 20 to the 24th you’ll experience an exciting programme of artworks, outdoor theatre, sensory installations and participatory creative activities, along Great Pulteney Street, at the Holburne Museum and in Sydney Gardens.

How Sydney Gardens will look for the event.

That’s where l found artist Luke Woodbury at work this morning. With the help of the Council’s tree team he is creating his own take on a sensory experience and using a tree – feed because it was diseased – as a physical anchor for his work.

Turning a fallen tree into a work of imaginative art!

I asked him to explain exactly what he was up to.
