As part of Artweeks, 20 households on the Workhouse Estate have created artwork, and displayed it in front gardens as part of an arts trail, celebrating that we are all living ‘under one sky’ even during the social and physical distancing of lockdown. The trail is available at https://www.popupartscollective.co.uk/workhouse-arts-trail
Clare Davis, a local artist, has organised the event, and is seen here with the Mayor. There is also a more formal exhibition in Clare’s studio and garden at 30 Abbott Rd.
There were silk flags billowing freely in Boxhill Woods that have also been moved to Clare’s garden, out of harms way.
There is a range of people who have taken part – individuals of all ages, but also families – involving lots of work by children.
You can see more and book a visit to Clare’s studio at https://www.artweeks.org/festival/2021/pop-arts-collective. It runs until 23rd May.
Thankyou to the Workhouse Correspondent for these pictures.
