IN THE GARDEN | FREE FOR EVERYONE
The Love and Hope Boat is inspired by the boat held aloft in the hand of The Amazonian Caiman God, symbolising the touching love story of Jason Wilsher-Mills’ parents. A retired boat from Pugneys Country Park has been upcycled for the project. Fondly dubbed ‘HMS Pugness’ by the team at Pugneys, the boat offers a chance for people to contribute artwork, inspired by love and hope, as it sets sail across the district.
Work with artists and enjoy playful sculpture activities in the open air for this event celebrating the Love and Hope Boat.
Stack, build, experiment, draw and imagine with your family in the open air.
