Rise of the resting dragon

Undertaken by staff and customers after the idea of making a sculpture was born from working on another project.

Adults with learning disabilities, working at Greenacre Garden Centre & Café, have built a sculpture as part of their Work Based Training programme within the grounds of the garden centre.

Having chosen a dragon theme, customers and staff worked hard to complete the sculpture.

It is now a usable item within the garden, currently used as seating which will grow and develop into an attractive garden feature.

I had the idea from the earth that we were digging up from another project and asked the guys [customers] if they could think of an animal.

They decided on the dragon after I done a few drawings. I then laid out the main shape and we all worked on it from then on.
