A community centre’s garden has been trasformed with the creation of two outdoor sensory sculptures made by a local art group.

Northern Butterflies was set up in 2011 to provide opportunities for those with disabilities to engage and contribute to local art projects in the community, which in turn helps members gain a variety of new and transferable skills.

Working in partnership with Seaton Sluice Community Centre and other groups, Northern Butterflies has transformed the garden, creating two permanent outdoor sensory sculptures.

The metal wall hangings have been made using a variety of materials including metal, fused glass and objects like driftwood and shells.

Northern Butterflies has worked with a variety of people on this project, including glass artist Karen Griffiths.

Art director Samantha Goodlet said: “ The interaction has been amazing to observe and be part of, improving the quality of life, environment and providing a healthier community to live in.”
