Using the themes of "Heroes" and "Endangered Species" the card templates were designed by the children. I used these to cut out the shapes in plywood at my workshop. Back at the school the children carved incised designs on the plywood surfaces, then filed and sanded smooth the edges. The shape painting and tree construction was carried out in my workshop August - October 2010. The tree was installed in the playground on a wet Tuesday, 26 October 2010.
