Final day: We installed the workshop into stevenson square in NQ and we had to attract interest by approaching nearby pedestrians. Plenty of people seemed to be interested and all the plants were eventually taken. I also helped with moving the installation to the Hulme Garden centre after the day had finished

Me and james were given the task to create the plant pots which would be placed on the shelves and eventually be given away. These were made out of several different types of jars and bottles.

Final Idea: A tripod shaped workshop which would have a stencil/infographic mural side, a d.i.y. plant shelf, and finally a ready made plant shelf.

Group Idea: Our idea we presented was a mechanical system which focused on promoting awareness of water waste. It would be an interactive system with elements which would be triggered by one another in a chain reaction. The final step would result in plants being watered by bottles
