Sometimes you just have to build a Totem Pole out of teasels! Surrounded by an abundance of building materials and with artists such as Andy Goldsworthy and Richard Long in our minds' eye we set about gathering the resources to construct our Totem to nature!
Our Totem is not carved out of wood but constructed out of teasels and grasses as a tribute to the end of the summer season and to welcome in the next!
Setting aside an afternoon, we ambitiously got to work with gathering as many teasels as we could muster. With no clear plan but with an urge to celebrate the season we harvested our bounty. Here are a few snapshots of the afternoon! Movie to follow soon..
