It has been very exciting to put the children's artwork onto the wall. Two participants of one of the Huntclub workshops came today to look at their artwork and we were able to intstall the Miles St. Church whilst the artist who made it watched.
On the first day of mosaicing, I was joined by Alessandra who made a large area of houses and streets.
Our community volunteers today were my two friends Evie and Melissa and a local young person called Nicholas. It was very good to have such valuable company. We achieved a lot and now have three eighths of the mural installed.
If you would like to have a go at Mosaicing the mural, you can turn up on one of the following days:
this coming Monday 13th Ocotber 9 - 2.30
Saturday 18th October 10 - 4pm
