A Celebration of Cranes - 22nd November

Somerset Artworks (SAW) and The Great Crane Project are collaborating on 'A Celebration of Cranes' - a celebratory project working with artists, musicians, local schools and communities. An illuminated lantern procession with spectacular crane puppets, dramatic costumes and live music with The Big Noise Street Band will take place on Saturday 22 November at 4.30pm.

An enthusiastic group spent two days working with artist Sarah Butterworth to create giant cranes for the event, see the  SAW blog for latest updates http://greatcraneart.blogspot.co.uk/
