Newhall Creative Collective
An exciting new exhibition and book for 2020! ‘Imagination Runs Wild’, created by Newhall Creative Collective. The exhibition was on display at Sharpe’s Pottery Museum in March 2020.
The exhibition is a celebration of work made over the course of a year-long creative project by members of Newhall Creative Collective.
It coincides with the launch of a brand new book of artworks of the same title. A digital copy of the book can be viewed here.
Each Wednesday afternoon, a group of around ten people met at Chrysanthemum Court, Newhall. They drank tea, ate cake, laughed, chatted and made art! Working with professional artists, the group learnt lots of different artforms, including fused glass, print making, photography, felt making, willow weaving film making and silk painting (to name a few!).
The project was designed for people who didn’t have much confidence to take part in the arts, with group members who never thought they would be able to make artwork to be proud of. But now see for yourself the inspiring and beautiful work they have produced! The project was supported by People Express, a professional participatory arts organisation based in Swadlincote and funded by an Awards for All grant from The Big Lottery Fund.
