Derby Well Dressing 2016

This year's trail was part of our 'Derby Green Spaces during World War One' project and all the well dressings were based on the research we had found. 
We exhibited the 10 well dressings around the city centre venues and also in the Derby Arboretum Park. 
We worked with 5 schools, community groups as well as many visitors some from as far away as Australia.

A Space for Summer - London Road Community Hospital

We have started a 3 month project working at London Road Community Hospital with patients on the 3 older people's wards supported by Airarts and 2 MA students from Derby University.
We are decorating the windows in the wards to make a space for summer, with beach huts, fishes, buckets and spades and sea-shells. We are using three different artforms, collage, printing and sewing. 
We have had some lovely summery music to accompany the sessions from violinist Kathy Lucas.
