'step in stone’ launched their Finale

'step in stone’ launched their Finale with a terrific Preview evening at Black Swan Arts.  Frome Mayor Kate Bielby gave out certificates to their young sculpture design competition winners and it was thrilling to see so many people there, appreciating all the dedicated work and talents of the artists and curators.  
 
"Leading up to the Finale, Artists have been working extremely hard and going to great lengths to achieve their ambitious site-specific works.  Amanda Wallwork journeyed into ‘deep time’ (the term used to describe vast unimaginable timescales involved in geological processes), gaining access to microscopic scans donated by the British Geological Survey; part of Duncan Cameron’s work included recording in Fairy Cave Quarry overnight, Sally Kidall spent months over from Australia to create her dramatic Land Art pieces and Cath Bloomfield enlisted the help of rock climber Terry Gifford to attach her Gabion pieces to the sheer vertical rock faces in Fairy Cave Quarry.  We have had a wonderful response and great turn out over the first few days of our Finale.  It’s been very encouraging to see all ages enjoy our quarry artscapes and related indoor exhibitions.  Visitors have been so inspired by the artwork and quarry environments that they have been creating their own guerilla art on site and sending us images of work they’ve since created at home!" 
 
Special Events are running from now until the end of the Finale Festival (18th October) to engage the community, including Family Day in the magical Fairy Cave Quarry this Saturday 10 October, felt workshops with Suzie Gutteridge and Artist Talks with Tessa Farmer.   Don’t miss exploring the arts trail around Somerset Earth Science Centre (open Wednesdays and for all the special events from Sun 11-Sat 17th Oct),  

Black Swan Arts, Frome Museum

 and the disused and working quarries of Westdown/Asham, Fairy Cave and Halecombe.
 
step in stone has been running since July - building up in 3 steps to its Finale fortnight as part of Somerset Art Weeks Festival ‘Momentum’.

"Hi Tony,
I have been using the Stihl cordless hedgetrimmers for a while now- and can not find any major fault with them. Of course, they will struggle to get through thicker shrubs but then so do some of the petrol engines out there- hence why you h…"

"Thanks Steve. Yes, I can forsee me having problems with snagging the cable from the belt! Still, sounds like progress, although the KM130 petrol is a real beast and a hard act to follow."

"I have just bought (about 3 weeks ago) the battery Kombi to go with existing tools. I used to have a km130r and it is not as powerful as that however for garden work it is perfectly powerful enough, the only time I notice a difference is strumming l…"

"This thread just made me smile. 
While I have no problem at all with man bags, I too am one of those blokes who stuffs everything in their pockets because I'd rather be uncomfortable than carry something.  I don't have a wallet, so notes and change…"

"Sarah, as you’re Farnham/Surrey based it’s worth knowing about a smaller reclamation yard on the A325 at Wrecclesham, Farnham (just up the road from me), if you don’t already....
Not as expansive as wood street, focusing on internal design items but…"
