Inset day with Norfolk's Master Composters at Holt Hall
The basic structures of the male and female sculptures were made before training, then they had to be “dressed” by using compostable materials. The female figure from green compostable materials and the male figure from brown materials, to create a couple which symbolises the ideal 50/50 mix that make great compost. The sculptures were displayed at the Recycle for Norfolk stand at the Royal Norfolk Show.
