I went to a workshop for the Garston Park Art project this evening. This one was with members of Friends of Garston Park and the Garston and District Historical Society to talk about how we would create the images for the artwork around the sports pitches on the park. I was relieved to hear that actual artistic talent was not compulsory! The community artists will help us with stencils etc once we have worked out what we want to depict.
Anyway, there are quite a few ways to get involved and we are looking for more groups to take part and take "ownership" of one or two boards that will form the finished work.
The workshops are on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 6pm. On Mondays it's White Oak Lodge on Beechwood Road. Wednesdays is Garston Park Church and Thursdays is the Garston Urban Village Hall.
If you are part of a group that wants to join in, do come along or let me know and I will pass on your details.
