We ran arts and crafts workshops with a variety of groups during the project. Below is a selection of the work that was produced.
Children were encouraged to write words they would like to use to describe Brierley Hill in the future around their handprint pictures.
A tree collage was created using the participant’s handprints as leaves and displayed in the Artspace shop window.
Taylor-Bea created a postcard to send to a friend.
Wish you were here. I love Brierley Hill. I went down the del park. I went on the fair. The Waltzers = 3x Triller = 2x Biby Limits = 3x Crooked cottage = 1x I loved it!
B.T.W. I saw some horses cantering down the high street by the community centre.
Lots of love Tay XXX”
Children aged between 2 and 8 contributed their artwork to this collage which show many of the distinctive features of Brierley Hill: Chapel Street Flats, Marsh Park and The Markets.
Lucy Wood drew this picture of the Brier Rose to sum up Brierley Hillness.
