Jane Austen bench ready for installation

As part of "Rain Jane" to celebrate 200 years of Jane Austen, I have been commissioned by Winchester City Council to create an oak and forged steel bench for Winchester College Gardens.  The bench is inspired by drawings created during a workshop I hosted with children from Winnal Primary school.  I used regency textiles along with the Jane Austen quote "To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment." as a theme for the day of drawing and paper cutting.
