Norden Farm look set to build living 'dancing' sculpture

Dancers are often seen inside Norden Farm Centre for the Arts, but they could soon become a permanent fixture outside as well.

The centre has applied for permission to build a living sculpture of three dancing figures designed by artist Trevor Leat, using willow wrapped around a frame which could grow and change with the seasons.

Jane Corry, chief executive and artistic director at the centre on Altwood Road, said: "We want to put something in front of Norden Farm that is gorgeous and something which fits in with the beautiful street.

The project will use money recieved from a lottery grant and artist Trevor will run workshops to teach the weaving techniques to local residents and in schools as a part of the £10,000 spent.
