Wall-to-wall art is on offer

Malvern Editorial 17th Dec, 2014 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

A COMMUNITY centre is set to be transformed into an indoor woodland made out of carpet as an innovative art project rolls into town.

Malvern Cube will become home to the Carpet Forest over Christmas complete with artificial trees, plants and authentic sounds of nature.

It will be the last chance for people to see the unique creation which was originally made for the Kidderminster Arts Festival.

The Forest celebrates the history of carpet making with everything made by cuttings from the Brintons factory.

Designers Jo and Kate Deburgh from P.L.A.N.E.T. Arts said: “Our work is very much a reflexion of our combined personalities, a synergetic collaboration between sisters for who nature’s colours, patterns and forms are mutually inspiring.

“Each project starts by unearthing the potential of overlooked, disregarded and abandoned materials.

“Unusually beautiful and desperately undervalued, these ‘spent’ resources make our work accessible to a large audience as they are, on closer inspection, both recognisable and every day.”

The free Carpet Forest will be at Malvern Cube between 11am and 4pm from Saturday to Tuesday (December 20 to 23) and between 12pm and 4pm from Saturday, December 27, to Tuesday, December 30.

It will also be host to other events including a screening of Frozen on Saturday (December 20) from 5pm where donations will be taken on the door.

Drop-in workshops will take place on Sunday (December 21) for £2 between 11am and 1pm and 2pm and 4pm where the creators will be on-hand to help make paper stars and Christmas decorations.

Then at 5pm on Christmas Eve the Trench Choir will be providing a free concert.
