Young Elmers

As well as the 55 large Elmers you could find around Ipswich, we also had 84 young Elmers displayed in 11 different ‘Learning Herds’ all over town, each representing a local school or youth organisation.

The 11 Learning Herds were as follows:

  • Coes;
  • Ipswich Museum;
  • Christchurch Mansion;
  • Pennikkity Pots Ceramics Cafe;
  • Sailmakers Herd;
  • Jacey’s Coffee House;
  • Tourist Information Centre;
  • Buttermarket;
  • Idelo Travel;
  • Emma’s Florist;
  • LoveOne.

Elmer’s Learning Herd was supported by:
