Making a mud kitchen Day 2

It was a fun day, finishing off the mud kitchen and creating some bamboo chimes for Primrose Hill Primary School's new nursery area. After introducing a group from Carat to Cecil Sharp House permaculture garden we got to work, beginning with another layer of varnish to ensure the structures and mural would last in the outdoor classroom.Lots of ideas emerged about how to design the 'mud kitchen' sign and a large group of people began some painstaking work of planning out the letters, which were interspersed with pictures of flowers and insects using the many stencils available. The sign quickly took shape!Another group started to cut the bamboo to size and created the spacers to hold the bamboo apart. We tried out the bamboo, which had grown to different thicknesses and sounded lovely!The group created the frame started with some pole dancing to develop the mood and then with the help of a DIY expert quickly, sawed and started to screw the frame together. After lunch we carried the pieces of the mud kitchen up to the school and in the baking hot playground started with some reminiscing of earlier times with hula hoop practice, before getting down to some swift work to finish the final pieces of the mud kitchen and the bamboo frame. Putting them all into place, photos were sent to the teacher in charge of the nursery, who was thrilled before clearing up and off for a well-earned drink down the pub!
