We are continuing the “All Along Hyde Rd” project at Gorton library. Working hard and starting the New Year as we mean to go on. We are nearing the end of this project and a lot of the paintings are being placed together to formulate the final artwork of the representations of the local Gorton pubs that were along Hyde Rd, many of which are sadly not there anymore. We are opening it up to anyone who would like to get involved with the project. If you are interested and want to create a part of artwork that will formulate a bigger piece then please feel free to come along. It will be our last session for you to be involved, so last chance saloon. The session will be on Monday 22nd January and will run from 2pm-4pm, ask at the desk for which room we are in (it will probably be the loud one haha).

Here are a few photos of the “Parklife” banners on display at the local Gorton library. It is always great to share the project’s finished artwork within the local community. So get along to Gorton library and see these wonderful blankets created by Gorton Visual Arts, with help from The Crafty Sew and So’s and pupils from All Saints Primary School.

Last orders at the Bar. This was our last week working with the residents on this project at Thomas Regan Court and Abbey Road Tower Block. Lots of fun, laughter and mince pies with a little work thrown in (it is near Christmas). It has been really enjoyable working with the residents and it is always a pleasure to hear “ When are you coming back?” We will be working at Gorton Library on the 8th/ 15th/ 22nd January 2018 and these sessions will be open to any local Gorton residents so if you have liked what we have been doing and want to try your hand at it come along in the New Year.

We shared our “ Park Life” Project blankets with All Saints Primary School in Gorton. It was great to take them into the school and have the pupils use them and have a picnic on them as we discussed the project with them and thanked them for their input of stories, which formulated the lettering on the blankets.

 

“The children loved asking questions about the art and the artists. They enjoyed learning about how they made the blankets. They really enjoyed eating their lunch on the blankets.”
