Man Alive (a Knowle West men’s group of keen makers and craftsmen) were with Chris in The Factory today making planters to go out on Filwood Broadway and brighten it up with colourful bulbs and flowers. Next week they’ll be making a bench to go with them and other groups will be in to build more planters. Come Springtime it will be a colourful boulevard past the library and up to the green. Hope Man Alive will be back soon, they brought so much fun to the workshop, and got a lot of use out of the power tools!
Update: the second session produced a stunningly proportioned bench to go between the planters, kindly modelled by Don (sat down) and spring flowers Merv and Robert below.
