Recycling scrap metal with imagination and a MIG welder, Gavin Darby of Frailloop creates metal sculpture designed mainly for the garden and other outside locations. Garden gates, business signs, office focal points and of course the unique garden animals and flowers have all come out of the Nottinghamshire based Frailloop workshop.
Planted the steel tree and met lots of pupils. The weather forecast was good, but the reality was rain. Digging the holes was hard work - lovely chalky soil that was as tough as concrete! Tree in. Leaves set in the flower bed. Looking good.
