The Kirkwood
Wild in Art

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


As we get ready to welcome our Snowdogs to towns and villages across Kirklees next Autumn, we are inviting schools, colleges and youth organisations across Kirklees the chance to get involved by adopting and designing their very own mini Snowdog sculpture. 

More than just a chance for young people to get creative, we’ve also developed a learning programme and resource pack linked to the curriculum, so your students will be learning lots whilst having fun and getting involved in an exciting and unique community project! 

When your school or youth organisation sign up, we’ll send you a Snowdog sculpture to decorate, which will be proudly displayed in venues across Kirklees alongside the main trail in Autumn 2022. 

It’s a great opportunity for your pupils and their families to admire their hard work and creativity in the real world – and a chance to showcase the talents of your pupils!

By joining our Learning Programme, each school or group will pledge to raise a minimum of £750 for The Kirkwood over the next 12 months.  Each school or group will receive a blank Snowdog pup sculpture to decorate, and we’ll also send a learning programme resource pack linked to the curriculum to help teachers stimulate young minds.

If you’d like more information about being part of our Learning Programne, please download our Information pack below. You can also register your interest or sign up to take part:
