An orange Christmas ribbon extravaganza

 Happy New Year.......this is a belated January posting (the New Year cogs in my brain are now turning, and I'm back with everyone into a routine, yes even artists like routine, well this one does) of the pre-Christmas fun and games we had 'dressing the tree' or rather the Summer House.
This was exciting because the staff in department had started the process by putting in a lovely white Christmas tree and using the structure from the previous installation, to hang baubles freely around the inside of the 'house'. Exciting because our purpose was for the art to engage people, particularly the hospital community, who would then feel an ownership of it. 
So we planned around what they had done with the resources we had to hand, (there isn't a materials budget for these Pop ups, so resourceful is our middle name) to make sure we could create a 'decorated house'.

I'd like to point out the 'fun and games' of untangling 10 lots of ribbon that is 10 metres in length, here untangling rope skills from climbing came into there own!
