The developers of the new homes in Watchfield have contributed money for public art in the village and the Vale of White Horse District Council has commissioned Pat Walls, a professional stone carver, to carve a series of interesting standing stones, seats and sculptures that will be located around the village. There will also be an exciting new play feature that will be made of stone.
Pat wants everyone in Watchfield to play a ‘hands on’ part in designing the carvings. He has organised a stone carving workshop at the village hall on Saturday, 4th March from 10am to 4pm.
Everyone will be able to do some stone carving and you will have chance to talk to Pat about the kind of standing stones and seats you would like in the village. Many of the carvings that are done at the workshop will be included in the design of the stones and seats. Your carving could be admired by many people for many years to come!
The workshop is suitable for children and adults and there is no charge. The carving will take about an hour of your time, or as long as you like, and there will be refreshments. You can drop in to do a carving any time between 10am and 4pm.
