Mountains We Made

Details

Constructed from sustainably sourced oak from Grizedale Forest, Mountains We Made by Charlie Whinney invites young and old to walk along sections of Lake District mountains created from steam bent wood.

Lakes Ignite 2018 presents six specially commissioned contemporary artworks to celebrate the Lake District’s designation as a World Heritage site. From January to July 2018, six artists are bringing their creative vision to the Lakes with a unique collection of artworks that are free to visit and explore.

Each installation provides a different perspective on our World Heritage story using very different media including metal, wood, mirrors, inflatables, performance and virtual reality. So whether you’re 8 or 80, come and spark your imagination in 2018 and experience art in our celebrated Lake District landscape.
