specially commissioned artwork by internationally renowned artist Helen Denerley whose unique creations combine a love of the natural world and all the technical aspects of working in metal.
The forms are never whole, the use of negative space makes them come alive, creating form where there is only air. Helen has turned this into ‘Positive Space’
A community celebration to mark the installation of two sculptures , to launch a sculpture trail which will ultimately encompass the Heaton Mersey historic conservation area, Mersey Vale Nature Park, the embankment woodland walk and the Sidings Community Orchard.
The launch event will include a live music component taking in the Heatons high street, Didsbury Road.
