AUTUMN 2013 – SPILLING THE BEANS
Working as part of Art Up Close & Crewe Senior Forum providing a series of six workshops during 2013. The collaborative project involved working with 50+ senior residents of Crewe to create art journal pages, which were collated and displayed on a life-sized tree sculpture made from recycled materials by the group. All work from the project was taken on a touring exhibition around Crewe during 2014, starting at Crewe Hall.
It was a brilliant opportunity for our senior members to share their memories, be creative and experiment with ideas, materials and techniques to tell their stories.
Hopes & Beams
It was a delight to see the children express their creativity and work together alongside their families and friends to be part of such an exciting commemorative event that connected them with their community and heritage.
