Developing the woodland gallery

Developing the woodland gallery

Stoneface Creative By Stoneface Creative

We are wanting to make Sheffields unique woodland gallery more accessible by putting in new walk ways and tracks that would allow for ease of access for a wider audience.

Loxley Delivery stage

pledged of £5,312

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

The Woodland Gallery is located in Storrs Wood just 15 minutes from Sheffields city centre, it is a privately owned woodland by local artist Andrew vickers who opens the woodland gallery up for free to the public on a regular basis over certain weekends with visitor numbers reaching between 600-700. Up until this point all the work that has gone into making the woodland gallery one of Sheffields most unique outdoor spaces has been done solely by Andrew Vickers. The next development phase in the woodland gallery is to create new walk ways making more of the woodland accessible to the public. We would also like to be able to open more of the woodland up to visitors who have disabilities such as wheel chair users. The new tracks would allow the public to experience more art and nature in a one of a kind setting. We would also like to include local community groups and schools to get involved in the project to learn about nature and woodland management.

What we'll deliver:

  • Create new woodland walkways for the public to enjoy more of the woodland gallery
  • include local community groups and schools in the development of the woodland
  • create volunteer opportunities to work within the woodland gallery

Why it's a great idea:

• Improve the visitor experience of the woodland gallery • Will allow for schools and local community groups to learn more about nature and woodland management • Will create volunteering opportunities to work within the woodland gallery to help create the new tracks • The new tracks would potentially open up more gallery space allowing for other artists to potentially exhibit there work to a wider audience

Steps to get it done:

  • Began to clear the area for the new tracks with help from the volunteers
  • ordered the new track plainings
  • began to lay the new track with help from the volunteers
