We also got the children to look at natural treasures found in the woodland area, small buds, seeds, pods, the shape of leaves...and we encouraged them to be inspired by these to make their own clay treasures that we then put in our 'Gallery of Guilded Frames'. I took inspiration from these clay treasures to create the final wood sculpture and many of the small trinkets that children brought to the workshop ended up in the treasures that Sharon created.

The Sculpture comming together....
The Sycamore was selected from Sherwood Forest, and then carved in my studio.
Checking there is enough depth to hold treasures!
A few coats of Teak oil...
Magnets in the treasures are attracted to the bolts that I have attached to the top and underside of the sculpture.
