The Learning disabilities project Poetry in Wood were involved in the 2014 Lord Mayors Parade when around 35 artists, both students and workers, came together to create a float for this high profile annual event. This is a joyous, colourful and energetic selection of works using painted plywood which mirrors the natural world in thematic terms with subjects that range from birds and animals to insects and plants. Preparatory drawings and paintings are also on display. This exhibition is a celebration of all the hard work, talent and dedication that went into the float’s creation.                                                         

Poetry In wood were one of three charities chosen to take part in the 2014 Lord Mayor's Show.

We designed and built a float with everyone at Poetry In Wood making things for it. It was called "Helping Hand" and was created to show the work we do in our Training and Enterprise teams.

HAPPINESS GARDEN AT THE CANVAS  CAFE.

Have a look at what we knocked up for the Canvas Cafe. They love a bit of yellow over there so we

thought daffodills and bumble bees would be rather welcome in their little "Happines Garden".
