Furness College Seating Design Visit

Furness College tutor Mike Walsh and art and design students form the college visiting the Green Heart Den along with Julia Geere, Enterprise Learning Advisor at Barrow Excellence Cluster Partnership. Their return visit forms part of their work on the ‘Involving Schools and Colleges in Barrow's Regeneration" programme, which is funded by West Lakes Renaissance.
During the visit the students had the opportunity to discuss the project with Project Coordinator Graham Bromley who also presented the students with a brief to develop options for seating designs. Once agreed the final design will ultimately be fabricated locally and installed on the Green Heart Den. Funding for this work is to be provided by the grant we received from Our Green Space, a Cumbria-wide three-year partnership project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund’s 'Your Heritage' grant scheme.
