What a lovely morning with Field House Care home residents and St Paul’s Junior school students doing a shared workshop for Window Wanderland.
Such lovely conversations alongside the making - one student said “I felt like I’d spent time with my grandma” and a man no one knew could draw sketched the most incredible picture of a church. Ages ranged from 7-99, and there were lots of residents there who had lived in Shepton Mallet all their lives.
It was such a privilege to work with Set Designer Elly Widowski who lives in Shepton and will now be cutting designs ready for students and residents to colour in a few weeks. This project is a partnership with @artbankcafe @rubbishartproj and has been made possible through support from Somerset Council Improving Lives funding and Wells Literature Festival and Mendip Council.
Students and residents are making scenes that will decorate the windows of the Anglo trading estate in March as part of @windowwanderland in Shepton Mallet. Anyone can take part in this free community event. Sign up your windows here: https://www.windowwanderland.com/event/shepton-mallet-2020/
