I spent the first half of 2017 as the artist in Residence for Reviresco a Community Art Project for the lancashire mill town of Rishton, funded by The Arts Council England.

The aim of the project was to use art as a catalyst to unite and strengthen the community by remembering our great industrial past and looking forward to our future and was based in Piggy Park, a community food growing garden in the town.

During the 7 months I worked with 16 schools and community groups to create...

  • Community murals 
  • A mosaic bench.
  • Printed calico bunting wish flags (Rishton's famous for it's calico)
  • Willow/tissue sculptures for the Rishton Festival parade.
  • 'The Felt Potting Shed', a wet felted tent made entirely from British wool dyed using local plants and used for the final exhibition at the Rishton Festival.

    Take a look at some videos from the project

In our final workshops we created willow and tissue puppets for the Rishton Festival. It was a great way to celebrate our 7 creative months.

Thanks to everyone who took part in the project. Now that we've shown what a creative community we are lets keep going.
