Highbridge Community Book

Residents of Highbridge are invited to co-create a printed book containing artwork and writing. Through a series of workshops run by a group of local artists members of the community will create work in a variety of forms to then be included in the final book. The workshops are:

  • Mixed media, journaling, and collage
  • Printmaking techniques (lino, gelliplate, dry point, collagraph)  
  • Calligraphy/ illuminated lettering
  • Writing 
  • Painting
  • Alternative photography (cyanotype)

All workshops will be free and materials will be provided. Booking information and dates coming soon. Check back for more details or sign up to our mailing list below.

 

 

The concept of the Highbridge Podcasts is to gather and create audio recordings of people’s lives in and around the town, merging past and present by creating an aural history of Highbridge through its residents.  All podcasts will be based around the themes of PeoplePlaceActivities.

Artist Mell Turford will work with local groups around Highbridge to capture and produce the podcasts and preserve the content as an archive for future generations. These podcasts will tell the tales of Highbridge from a community perspective.
