Fair Ways Fairy Garden on Saturday 10th - Saturday 24th November 2018
Fair Ways Fairy Garden is being constructed between September 2018 and early Spring 2019 at Royal Victoria Country Park. This spectacular Project will see the stump of a felled cedar tree transformed into a medieval theme of castles, dragons and of course fairies. In addition the felled wood will also create a supersized picnic table and area for users of Royal Victoria Country Park.
Work on our Fairy Garden officially commenced in September 2018.
As chainsaw sculpting is weather dependent, there is no defined work schedule, however the work will take place in daylight hours, on fine weather days over the following months. In this period, the area will be transformed by pupils from three Fair Ways schools, and all the sculptures will be carved on site.
Christopher Bain is a professional Chainsaw Sculptor, based in Hampshire, who creates unique pieces of art as a beautiful way to provide a second life to memorable or historic trees.
Fair Ways Fairy Garden will be one of his largest commissions and will provide a medieval theme of Castles and Dragons and of course Fairies. The garden will also be an area for families and other Royal Victoria Country Park users to meet and picnic. The great Cedar can therefore continue to provide pleasure for many years to come.
