PlanetArt is proud to present The Carpet Forest
Kidderminster town hall has been transformed! strange trees have taken root and sprouted up through the carpets,telling forgotten tales from the factories. Sunlight filters down from above and beautiful birds can be heard through the canopy as you explore this magical environment.
Come and join us. Saturday 10th & Sunday 25th August. Time: 10am -4pm daily.
ITS FREE. This project has been inspired by the designs of Brinton’s carpets.
PLANET have had the added pleasure of working along side musician Andy Edwards (www.andy-edwards.com) who created our beautiful soundtrack, animator Babis Alexiadis (www.babis-alexiadis.com) who has been working on documenting the creation and life of the Carpet Forest and Story teller Heather Wastie as part of the Weaving Yarns project. Lighting was created by Dragon Leisure.
We would like to thank Loz Samuels from K.A.F13 the Kidderminster Arts Festival for making this project possible.
“The Carpet Forest video below captures the creative imagination of Jo and Kate Deburgh when they are in full creative flow. It showcases the talent and wonder that these two artists can conjurer up from recycled materials, it really is quite magical, just watch the video and be transported to another world.” (Andy Jones – Media Technician – University of Worcester)
