Woodland project flourishes with Signs Express


Signs Express got its hands dirty helping to create over 2,500 bespoke leaves for a new art exhibition for the Woodland Project based in Lincolnshire, which opened earlier this year.


The initiative, conceived by British painter and lecturer Christopher Wiles, has seen over 2,500 school children across the county take part in an arts workshop pro- gramme that explores issues of growth, sustainability and biodiversity. Out of these workshops, every child made a miniature artwork in the form of a leaf. And over 2,500 trees have been planted to create a new woodland in the heart of the county, thanks to the kindness of businesses and locals.


We love working


with local causes and this project has


combined all elements of art, education and ecology, so we were more than happy to get involved


The completed project.


Christopher is unveiling a Woodland Project exhibition at The Collection in Lincoln, where every child’s leaf artwork will form the centerpiece. They have been printed free of charge by Signs Express centres all over the UK. 11 different Signs Express branches have been involved in the printing for the ex- hibition, such as Lincoln, Sheffield, Grimsby, Peterborough, Nottingham, Doncaster, Har- rogate, Chester, Central Lancashire, Hull


and York. Signs Express (Lincoln) also pro- duced all the vinyl lettering and the trunk of the tree that the leaves hung from.


Christopher said: "I have been lucky enough to have a number of companies sponsor various elements of The Woodland Project. It is really heartening to see how busi- nesses, like Signs Express, are willing to support cultural and environmental projects, especially in the current economic climate. Small amounts of support can make a really big difference, and mean that we can en- gage members of our local communities in activities that otherwise wouldn't be able to take place."


Richard Howes, owner of Signs Express (Lincoln) said: “We love working with local causes and this project has combined all el- ements of art, education and ecology, so we were more than happy to get involved. It has been excellent to see so many of the Signs Express network work together to make sure it is a success.”


It has long been a dream for Christopher, to combine his passion for conservation and ecology with his vocation as an arts lecturer.
