Work in the Community

Shawn Williamson has helped many trainees gain valuable skills in recent years.

In the former grounds of Trinity Church in Whitehaven (pictured right) Shawn and young people with Groundwork Trust created the sacred geometry of the labyrinth that echoed the original at Chartres cathedral in France.

A flagship community project for Shawn was the Massive Cockermouth Ram.
HRH The Prince of Wales unveiled the Herdwick Ram sculpture. This huge work is a major gateway feature for West Cumbria enabled through community training in stonecrafts, sponsored by Cumbria Vision.
Shawn's contribution to training and helping community groups through craft training has been widely recognised .
Shawn has found that trainees respond well to working with animal and natural forms. Community work has taken Shawn Williamson art and craft training into East Manchester, Barrow, Edinburgh,West Cumbria and North America,with many partnerships ongoing.

Shawn is a member of the Artworkers' Guild.
