In 2020, I was invited to co-ordinate a community project in partnership with Craven District Council. The celebrate exhibition is now open in the newly refurbished Craven Museum in Skipton and I was invited to visit the exhibition gallery. It was amazing to visit a museum again, something I haven’t done since July 2020. The refurbished museum is well worth a visit and you can book your free ticket online.
The exhibition gallery was a wonderful space, the bunting looked fantastic on the wall surrounded by dioramas, hand embroidery and some beautiful wedding clothing. The most exciting part of any community project is seeing the work people have created coming together. Because of the pandemic I have had to change the way I run projects like this, missing my regular visits to village halls and replacing them with Zoom meet ups and postage for materials and work. I’ve been lucky to lead a few projects in this way since the first lockdown in 2020.
If you are interested in working with me on a community or collaborative project please get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.
