Hedgespoken Supporters

Down the years, we've been lucky to have the support of many, many people who share our vision of a movable people's arts project such as Hedgespoken.

There are a few notable kindnesses that have helped us at difficult times. For this, we thank Graeme McCracken and Emma Sampson for hosting Hedgespoken in a barn at their farm for the build that seemed to go on forever. Roger and Claire Ashwheeler gave us a temporary home when we needed it in the final stages of the build. Robin and Annie Bowman took us in when the truck was in the garage in May 2016, and then Ben and Claerwen Gillespie gave us field-space and warm company while we fathomed the workings of this beast in the difficult early months of the journey. Thank you all!

And Leo Singleton, artisan engineer extraordianire, thank you forever for being brave and foolish enough to get involved in this adventure - your work is utterly amazing and we thank you for it daily.
