A rural design and community participation workshop. As per previous years the Rural Works participants spent a week on the Staveley Farm estate in Cumbria, exploring the landscape through observational drawings. Together we acquired learning about the specifics of this place, and proposed small and mid­scale ideas for interventions that would improve and enhance this rural village. Design ideas were produced collectively and in response to need. Concept designs were proposed that allowed people to better use, access and enjoy the rural context. As has been the case in the past, students stayed locally and embraced a week of rural living.
