The forest was covered in flowers

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

As part of Voluntary Art Week, local artist Susan Gierasik worked with pupils from Garvald School to decorate the Lost Garden of Penicuik. The theme was flowers in the forest based on a story by Selma Lagerlof. Selma Lagerlof was a Swedish author and winner of the Nobel prize for literature in 1909. The wonderful results of this venture can be seen from these beautiful photographs.

The installation was available to see from 16th until the 24th May and a few days beyond.
The colourful creations defied wind and weather, and showed themselves to each spellbound visitor in ever new light-&-darkness perspectives in this old part of the lost woods with the tumbling down gate…
Hope you enjoy the 100 perspectives in the Lost Garden Woollen Woodsslideshow here, which includes a wee video, too.

‘Flowers in the Forest’ was also re-purposing numerous crafty items created by local folks over the last 2 years craftbombing, brightening Penicuik, which was also then part of the National Voluntary Arts Week. Susan and friends from the Arts Asssociation created last year the Rainbow Trail in the same woods, getting inspiration from the Grimm’s fairy tale Haensel & Gretel.
