For those of you who haven’t been able to make to see the Flock installations, we have put together a short film. The soundtrack is courtesy of American singer and songwriter Daniel Martin Moore, with the track Schoolhouse Sketches premiering on this film. Why not take a look and see if you can spot your sheep!

In the last few months Flock installations have been displayed at Rheged Centre, Farfield Mill and Woolfest in Cockermouth – thousands of people have turned up to meet the sheep! The next stop on the Flock tour will be National Trust property Acorn Bank Gardens & Watermill in Temple Sowerby. Several thousand of the Flock sheep will be on display in the historic house from 1st-30th August, venue details can be found HERE
There will also be a number of Flock installations displayed in September, each made up of around 1500 lovely sheep. Florence Mine in Egremont will play host to a Flock from 5th-30th September and a Flock will grace the Wool Celebration Tent at Bowes Agricultural Show on 8th September.
Everyone who visited the first Flock installation at Rheged Centre in Cumbria were surprised and delighted by the display. 2500 people visited the Flock during its 10 days at Rheged, with people travelling from far and wide to see it. The exhibition was launched by the shepherdess Alison O’Neill along with her lambs and sheepdog. Visitors were invited to make their own sheep in the “sheep making area” and add it to the installation to help us reach our 5000 target. By the end of the Flock stay at Rheged we counted 4919 sheep so will be encouraging people to continue adding to the installation at it tours.
