Art in the Garden Project
This project will incorporate positive words applied with fabric markers and flower pounded colour on
large pieces of silk. Using jute, the silk can be gently suspended from tree branches, leaving the fabric
free to move with the wind.
The words and phrases written on the fabric will be visible to those enjoying Darts Hill Garden and will
promote positivity and well-being while connecting with nature.
