In September 2014, we started a new project with Good News Family Care in Buxton.
Based at their family centre (Charis House) and their farm, we run a variety of workshops for homeless women and children, those recovering from drug / alcohol dependency and other women who are interested and would benefit from joining in.
We are busying making an amazing ceramic bird bath with artist Caroline Chouler – Tissier.
‘Tree of Life’
We created a wonderful Tree Of Life in Ceramics for the Dining Room / Lounge of Charis House, which was unveiled in February by The Chair of Derbyshire County Council, Cllr Steve Freeborn and the Mayor of the High Peak, Cllr Sewart Young.
We also made lovely tiles for the hallway, with flowers and the word, Peace, Freedom and Flourish.
Back in September 2014, We started with a felt making project with artist Carol Wilson – to create large hand felted wall hanging, and a table runner using naturally dyed wool from local sheep.
The group also had much fun with shadow puppets, with the Babbling Vagabonds, creating 2 shows for Easter, and singing with Rose Hodgson.
The group has now also completed a mosaic project to create plaques for the bedroom doors at The Family Centre in Buxton – on the theme of ‘Flowers that Heal’, and a large Welcome Sign for the farm.
The group worked with artist Deborah Pitman, had a lovely time, with great results.
