the Millpond Bench project the Gypsy / Traveller ‘Priory
Project’ in Monkton received funding from ‘Save the
Children’ to create a carved Oak bench for their School
We looked at traditional carved and painted designs from the Gypsy
caravans as well as incorporating images that are particularly
important to the children now.
Work on the bench was filmed and featured on ‘Y Sipsiwn’
on S4C with the finished object transported up to Cardiff for
an exhibition of Gypsy Romani Traveller Culture at St Davids Hall.
