Katherine has been working as a volunteer with Plot22 for over a year, she also works as an Art Therapist in schools. Katherine has a multi media style drawing on traditional techniques often influenced by her multicultural background.
Katherine has co-facilitated our recent art sessions in print, lantern and wreath making. She is going to continue working with the plot as an artists to facilitate the art group alongside project manager Emma.
“What I love about Plot22 is the endless creative possibilities it provides. The growth of the plot is shaped by the desires and wishes of the members, we find ways of doing things I thought wouldn’t be possible. One of my favourite things to do at Plot 22 is to build structures from Hazel which has inspired me to use this material in my own garden, building fences and arches.”
Leo Dyke, 3D artist specialising in Cyberpunk costume design
Leo has co-facilitated our recent Monday make, garden and cook group for adults with learning disabilities. Leo is also a regular volunteer at our Friday garden group. Specialising in Cyberpunk design Leo crafts intricate pieces out of discarded electrical items and recycled objects. His costume pieces are worn at Live Action Role Play events.
Megan Alexander Brown, Illustrator
Megan is a gifted illustrator and one of our volunteers at Garden Fridays. In 2012 after seeing her work for the Right Here project website we commissioned Megan to draw us a map of the allotment site. What we love about the map is not only factually accurate it is also aesthetically pleasing and gentle to look at. We are really proud of it!
Megan’s map of the plot has been really influential in our work. The map grounds us and provides a sense of permanence, especially in the winter months when the garden does most of its work under the ground. We have a laminated copy of map so we can draw on it and plan our next ventures.
Having Megan’s map on our business cards immediately communicates a sense of place and initiates the conversation about our links with creativity which integrally combines with horticulture to create Plot22.
