Deb Hart, Graham Slade created a giant perch sculpture out of
willow, rush nettles and reclaimed steel. Perch are known to live in
the river Chelmer that runs through great Dunmow and fish are good
indicators of the health of a river. Artist Nabil Ali has taken
inspiration from the Green Man carving on St. Mary’s Church. He created “Leaf People” that were displayed in St. Mary’s Riverbank
Walk. The abstract figures made out of natural materials and are
there to encourage us all to pause and think about what we can all do
to help local wildlife. The art trail linked the sculptures by
taking families on a healthy walk through the town. 25 local
shops & cafes displayed artworks created by local children
and older adults. The art trail ran from 10-31 October.
Dunmow Big Draw was organised by local arts company High Stile
Projects and has been supported by a National Lottery grant from Arts
Council England. Local schools and groups taking part included Dunmow
St. Mary’s & Great Dunmow Primary, Freedom Daycare Nursery,
Dunmow Brownie units and residents from Redbond Care Home.
