Recyclyed Sculpture Competition


We thought you may be interested in a recycled sculpture competition in Worcestershire, if you know any groups who may be – please pass this on!


Over the past two years Worcester Roots Foundation have been working with a group of hardworking young people to completely transform the abandoned railway that ran through The Fold at Bransford.

The result is a picturesque nature trail created with mainly recycled goods that is easy to access and gives explorers the chance to see a variety of indigenous wildlife.

As the trail prepares to open we are holding a competition for community groups across Worcestershire to submit an outdoor sculpture, made of recycled goods that could be displayed for the world to see. All you have to do is create your sculpture, make sure it fits into our guidelines; then take a photo of it and email it over to us at emma@worcesterrootsfoundation.org.uk, along with a description about why your group thinks it’s great by 31st March 2016.


To make things even easier, Worcester Roots Foundation offer recycled craft making workshops for free (although your donations to the charity are always appreciated) so that you can get ahead of the crowd and make sure that your work is immortalised forever!


Our shortlist will be announced in early April and everyone will be invited down to our launch event on Saturday 30th April where the winners will be crowned and their sculptures will be displayed on the trail.


Your Sculpture Must Be…

-          Portable

-          Sturdy and as weatherproof as possible

-          Created using recycled materials

-          Fit into the themes of ‘Wildlife’ or ‘Railway’


This competition is open to:

Community groups or groups who work with young people (up to 25) in Worcestershire.

Groups are welcome to submit as many entries as they wish.


All decisions will be made by staff and core volunteers at Worcester Roots Foundation and their decision will be final.
