we hung up photos of our processes and work over the last 2 weeks in the all saints park, while talking about what we have learnt. Then we ate excellent tasting brownies!

final session, we looked at each groups' installations into the mmu campus while they presented the ideas and themes behind their work. Our group created a tree house out of scraps of wood we found in the workshops, as on of the branches was broken - name idea: "Protect the tree", says the Wood.

We painted our cast bright blue so it could stand out once re-appropriated into the site. The rainy Manchester weather made it stand out all the more.

guerrilla gardening. Our groups' theme was litter and sustainability. We created a litter Haven for 1:50 and 1:100 occupants directly in front of a bin that had the words "sustainable planet" on it.

In the third session we were casting and we made moulds, using clay, of interesting textures found on the walls, the ground, the road etc. of the campus. These made intriguing pieces of work we hope to paint in random colours and put back on site.

Second day we were introduced to the collaborator Stephen Rimmer and his work. Then we went out onto the mmu campus and attempted our own dispatchwork: filling in the cracks and gaps in walls with lego and making people look twice at these forgotten micro spaces on the mmu campus.

On the first day we were taken to three different sites were construction had been abandoned for various reasons; a view of some of the forgotten spaces in Manchester. One of the sites was re-appropriated into an underground car park.
