Crane Art at Slimbridge Wetland Centre

On Wednesday 15 June Beccy and Carol from SAW travelled to Slimbridge Wetland Centre in Gloucestershire to exhibit the fantastic crane inspired art work created by Somerset school and community groups.

Interest from the local residents

Paper mache work by Huish Episcopi Academy students

Delicate suspended wire work by primary schools

Cranes greeting visitors as they enter the centre
Slimbridge is where the crane eggs are hatched and baby cranes reared before being taken to Somerset for release on the Somerset Levels.  We wanted to build on this Slimbridge - Somerset link and take the opportunity to show the artwork in the beautiful foyer space and in the grounds of the centre.

The exhibition runs 15 June - 04 August 2011
The work will also be shown at Muchelney Abbey in Somerset during Somerset Art Weeks
