Lynchmere Common – Letting the Wolves loose
May 27, 2009 by woodlandantics
No, we’ve not gone mad. But if I’ve got this right, the class of Camelsdale primary school that was let loose on the Lynchmere commons on Friday is called ‘Wolves’. I had one bin burning when they arrived and then we opened up the three that I’d burnt the night before to find the charcoal.
The artist’s charcoal worked well and it was a hit with the class. I particularly liked this selection of pictures drawn on one of the boards I use at the site.
We went to find some more willow sticks to make more artists charcoal as the had class managed to use most that I’d made. We finished with a group photo on the trunk of a windblown birch tree.
Once the Wolves had left I was able to get on and burn the rest of the bins. The breeze was quite fickle and kept changing around. When it does this the smoke can get hung up in the trees creating some fantastic effects with the sunlight.
With all the bins going it was time to relax for a bit and cook my favourite meal – all day breakfast in the woods.
