Title: Shaped by Stone
Abstract: Shaped by Stone is a project devised for the Barnaby Festival, a cultural festival in Macclesfield, Cheshire. For the past few years the festival’s programme has been curated around a theme, this year’s theme was ‘Space’.
Interpreting the theme through our shared interest in the interconnection of people, place, nature and landscape, Shaped by Stone took the relationship of an abandoned hillside quarry called Tegg’s Nose (now a country park) and the evidence of its stone in the footpaths, walls and roads of Macclesfield Town Centre.
