The Priory Project Bench, Monkton, Pembroke.
After 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 Garden.
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.
