In case you wondered how the Carrot was made !

When you need a 3.2 metre carrot there is nothing for it but to roll up your sleeves and have a go. The completed carrot consisted of a wooden frame surrounded by a wire armature. Paper mache covered the wire then layers of plaster bandages were added for strength. Plaster was applied to smooth out the shape then sanded and painted. The finished carrot needed 6 people to carry it and was too big for any kitchen that I could find, so I built one too !!!
