The Glow Tree

22/05/2009

The Glow Tree was a 5-metre high stainless steel sculpture for Blackbird Leys Community Centre. The piece was inspired by a community learning project in which many different groups participated in workshops led by artist Neil Wood, in which they made their own cast relief sculptures.

Mentoring Programme

The Blackbird Leys Arts Group (BLAG) also benefited from a mentoring programme. The programme not only included personal one on one sessions, but also the opportunity for three of the group's members to visit Neil Wood's studio in Stafford to learn particular welding techniques and work on the final sculpture itself. These group members also visited a foundry in Wales to cast their own bronze leaf designs for the tree sculpture.

This project was part of Evolving City, the Urban Cultural Programme coordinated by Oxford Inspires and managed by Fusion in conjunction with the local community.
