Steel & Glass Fence

The Centre has over the past six years successfully undertaken a programme of arts development, which has involved the direct participation of all service users. The art works created to date are of high quality and the Centre makes every effort to share the project with the local populous. However, from the outside of the building, and unless people enter the Centre, the project was invisible to the immediate community and passers-by.

To remedy this The Grange Centre have undertaken a project with Sue Woolhouse (Glass Artist) and John Hay (Steel Fabricator) that shares the arts programme with the immediate and wider community through extending high quality arts to the outside of the building to be enjoyed by all. This is in the form of glass and fabricated steel work. This art form directly built upon the high quality work the group has already completed and served to broaden the active participation base within the Centre.

100_0019_4Carved birds and sunflowers created in previous art workshops by service users found them selves flying out of the Centre and settling on to the fence, gate and archway. Additional birds and animals were carved out of clay during workshops, to be later cast in coloured glass slabs and positioned within the steel fence.

Specifically the project ‘Inside Out’ created highly original sculptural railings and gate for the exterior of the Centre. The design of the work creates a lyrical and welcoming feature for the Grange.
