Boats small and large

The National Trust London Voices workshops start again next week with families from Liberty school in Mitcham, with a theme of ‘journeys’. Each family is going to make a boat like this sample I’ve been testing, and they will decorate it with their own family stories ready for a boat race on the Wandle at Morden Hall Park in March. Today I had a meeting at the park with sculptor Simon Kent – he will be creating a huge carved wooden ‘story boat’, and I will be working with him to incorporate some of the families’ work into the design. This project is going to be very exciting!
