As part of an ongoing partnership with RSPB Frampton Marsh, cammdesign were commissioned to produce their design for a Public Art piece, entitled ‘The Reflector’ to be located at the RSPB site near Boston. The piece will be situated in and directly respond to the site. Made from a combination of stainless steel and cedar, the piece will take the form of a larger than life reed bed, a representation of the division between land and water.

Artist Julie Willoughby has been previously commissioned to explore the challenge of creating beautiful and wearable art in the form of handmade hats and scarves inspired by bird feathers. Julie is now inviting families and individuals to create giant feathers, made from willow and tissue paper. These giant feathers, as well as the hats and scarves made in previous workshops, will be used to compliment the unveiling of  ’The Reflector’. The ‘Plumage’ parade will celebrate all that has been created by the community  as well as the public art piece itself. The unveiling will take place on Saturday 23 May from 2pm to 4pm.

  • A family based activity for all ages.
  • Children under 8 need to be accompanied by an adult.
  • If you would like to make a whole decorated feather, arrive no later than 12pm as the process takes 4 hours.
  • It can be a little messy so wear old clothes.

Come along to one of our drop in feather making workshops and make your own, larger than life feather and be a part of the celebrations at RSPB Frampton Marsh!
