Time for Nature

Time for Nature is an art trail in Spon End, Coventry by artists Juneau Projects working with the local community. It features twelve clocks with ceramic faces made by local groups. They are based on wildlife that will be encouraged to live along the river Sherbourne with improvements to the habitat that will be made by Warwickshire Wildlife Trust's upcoming Sherbourne Valley Project.

Local residents and groups including Bethel Chruch, Oasis Community Cafe, Wild Earth & Coventry Men's Shed sculpted and glazed the ceramic creatures for the clock faces. Workshops were held at Koco Community Resource Centre, The Rose Centre and Oasis Community Cafe.

The Clocks were made by:

Badger – Karl & Craig (Coventry Men’s Shed)

Bee – Mohammed Ahmed, Dee Ansell, Louis, Lucy & Sarah Gill, Christopher Mayne & Adrian Townsend (Wild Earth)

Chub – Jotie Sandhu

Dunnock – Owen Fear & Emily Kindness
