Ormiston Wire delights The Project Group with donation
Ormiston Wire, the global expert in wire and specialist applications, has recently donated a selection of its steel wire to The Project Group, a creative arts social enterprise based in Shropshire, for use at Hope House Children’s Hospice.
The 0.71 mild galvanised steel wire and 2mm mild steel wire produced and donated by Ormiston Wire have been used by members of The Project Group to make sculptures of animals, bugs and birds that live near or in trees. The sculptures are to be used to decorate trees on the roundabout outside the children’s hospice.
The Project Group supports members that are in touch with mental health services by running art projects in an environment that enables individuals to flourish, make decisions and build self-belief and confidence. The art and sculptures created by the members make up a retail range traded by the group, while the majority of work commissioned is for the public and private sector.
“We are thrilled that our donation to The Project Group has enabled their members to enjoy participating in such an interesting sculpture project,” said Mark Ormiston, Managing Director, Ormiston Wire. “The project at Hope House Children’s Hospice sounded excellent, so I’m delighted we could supply a selection of our wire, which is perfect for use in sculpting.”
“The Project Group team are extremely grateful to Ormiston Wire for donating the wire for sculpting,” said Jo Davis, Artistic Director at The Project Group. “Our members have adored this project, which has seen them twisting and bending different thicknesses into sculptures of birds and animals.”
