Well Dressing during Inspiring Derby Week

We created 4 well dressing during Inspiring Derby Week at Grove Lodge in the Derby Arboretum.
We worked with schools and community groups and the local community dropping in to help work on the designs.
The theme was the Derby Arboretum - the designer John Claudius Loudon, the community garden, the wildlife in the park and the park logo.
The well dressings were launched by Mayor of Derby, Cllr John Whitby and a blessing from Revd Dr Simon Cartwright.

Spiral @ RHS Chatsworth

We were most honoured to be invited to RHS Chatsworth to create a 'Have a Go' well dressing on the Sunday. We enjoyed the experience very much and we are hoping to go again next year.
Lots of interesting conversations with the public, lots of laughter in our star tent and at the end of the day a beautiful well dressing which we displayed in Grove Lodge back in the Derby Arboretum.

We were the star tent on the right!

Well Dressing @ the Royal & London Road Community Hospitals

We spent a week creating 6 well dressings at The Royal Derby and London Road Community Hospitals with patients, staff and visitors.
At the Royal we worked in maternity, near the staff cafe, in the main hospital, and in the Kings Treatment Centre. At London Road we worked on the Ward 4 with the older people and near the Blood Clinic in the main entrance.
The theme of the well dressings were based on Celebrating 10 years of AirArts delivering the Arts in the hospitals.
The well dressings were displayed in the open air courtyards for a week.
