A realistic model of the House of Wessex has been made by volunteer Brian Hempsted.
Brian Hempsted has been volunteering with Sylva Foundation for the last year, offering his considerable woodcarving skills in helping resident sculptor Simon Clements complete the Tree Charter poles. When he heard about the House of Wessex project, Brian admitted that he was also a keen model maker and offered to make an accurate model of the proposed building at 1:50 scale.
We’ve made a short film showing the model, which he’s just completed. We think it’s just fantastic!
The House of Wessex project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
