The Kirkwood
Wild in Art

A Wild in Art event brought to you by The Kirkwood.

Made by Cooper join the pack to help showcase artistic talent

Made by Cooper has become the latest local business to join the biggest art event in West Yorkshire, Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees. Organised by The Kirkwood, this free public art trail will see over 60 Snowdogs sculptures unleashed across towns and villages in Kirklees for all to enjoy.

Recognised nationally for their imaginative take on pin badges and wearable merchandise, Made by Cooper have been designing and supplying promotional materials from their base in Huddersfield since 2013, which is why this campaign is such a natural fit for a company which is all about championing creative ideas.

Made by Cooper have recently selected their favourite design from a selection of options, which will be unveiled in the coming months. The design will be hand-painted by the artist onto a giant Snowdog sculpture and placed on location along the trail to be admired by hundreds of thousands of visitors.

Made by Cooper has previously supplied pin badges for The Kirkwood when the charity rebranded in 2020, re-creating the Kirkwood K through a series of colourful designs.

Hannah Pearson, Marketing Executive at Made by Cooper comments: ‘We decided to become a Snowdog sculpture sponsor because we think it is a great initiative to get involved with, and it is such an interesting public event to be brought to Kirklees. It encourages our local community to get together and celebrate local artists, whilst also supporting The Kirkwood, an amazing charity who have touched many of our hearts.

‘We are a creative business, so to be involved in this community art event is incredibly exciting and we can’t wait for Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees to begin later this year!’

Inspired by the much-loved animated film, The Snowman™ and The Snowdog, the sequel to Raymond Briggs’ classic picture book and film The Snowman™, Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees will bring the magic of The Snowdog character to life through an extraordinary public art trail.

Organised by The Kirkwood in partnership with Wild in Art and Snowman Enterprises Ltd, Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees will be a free large scale art event and will show off the very best creative talent from local, regional and national artists. As part of this one-of-a-kind public art event in West Yorkshire, businesses are being given the opportunity to sponsor one of the individually designed Snowdog sculptures. This presents businesses with a unique and exciting way to promote their business throughout the local area.

The trail will help raise awareness and essential funds for The Kirkwood as they continue their work to help and support those living with a life limiting illness in Kirklees, while encouraging visitors from far and wide to explore new parts of our region.

Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees will launch in September 2022.
