Community groups to create art sculptures for Croome's Christmas trail

Malvern Editorial 6th Nov, 2023   0

A WORCESTER based National Trust site is working with local community groups to create sculptures as part of their Christmas trail.

The Seven Birds of Croome Christmas Trail will see artist MrASingh work with community groups and schools to create the fibreglass bird sculptures for families to enjoy this festive season.

Each bird will be placed in various locations across Croome’s incredible landscape for people to discover.

Artist MrASingh will be known to locals as the artists behind Worcester’s Elephant sculptures and Birmingham’s collection of Owl sculptures

Worcester Carers, Hanley Castle School, The Girl Guides, Pershore Riverside Centre and the Monday Night Club will all work with the artist on their very own sculpture.

The sculptures will be inspired by Croome’s theme of Looking Closely and the Thomas Bewick and Marcus Coates exhibitions on show at the National Trust site.




MrASingh said: “I’m really looking forward to working with the team at Croome and the seven groups on this fantastic co-creation project.

“Having created over 40 public art sculptures, I’m hoping to inspire these incredible groups by sharing tips and tricks while encouraging them to unleash their creativity, and trust in their artistic abilities.”


A spokesperson for the Monday Night Club said: ‘We are delighted to be a part of the project at Croome Court, a place we know and love.

“As a group of adults with learning disabilities and autism, we’re thrilled to share our creativity and add our unique ‘feathers’ to this vibrant art project.

“Together we’ll soar to new heights and create lasting memories.”

Jenine McGaughran, creative producer at National Trust South Worcestershire said: “Following an extremely popular artist open call we appointed MrASingh to work collaboratively with seven local community partners.

“Our aim has been to encourage these groups to tell us what inspires and excites them about Croome and to bring this to life on the bird sculptures that can be found across our parkland.

“We’re thrilled to be working with some very talented participants under the expert guidance of MrASingh.”
