Discover our Elmer the Patchwork Elephant Art Trails

Elmer’s Big Art Parades are sculpture trails inspired by one of the most iconic and widely read children’s book series of all time.

Discover our Shaun the Sheep Art Trails

Since 2023, we have been working in creative partnership with multi-award winning, independent studio Aardman to bring their well-loved, Academy Award® nominated film star Shaun the Sheep to towns and cities across the UK.

Did you spot us on the latest series of Inside the Tower of London? 🏰

Last year we welcomed the filming crew to our HQ to film some of our artists at work. They were busy transforming the winning designs from schools across the UK into works of art on Coronation Bench sculptures.

It was a huge privilege to work with @historicroyalpalaces and be a part of their coronation celebrations for King Charles III.

Look out for us in episode 2! 📽️

Elmer's journey to New Zealand's beautiful South Island is coming to an end this weekend. 🌈🐘

It has been fantastic bringing another #wildinart trail to Ōtautahi Christchurch, this time supporting the work of the @laurafergussonbraininjurytrust, who work tirelessly to support people and their families with brain, spinal and complex injuries.

Many thanks to the trail’s lead partner @zeroheightsafety for their contribution to ensuring the success of this trail!
