Our latest and exciting project is the creation of a mosaic at the front of St Leonards Warrior Square station, entirely designed and crafted by the community.
This activity will benefit the community in th following ways:
· Improve the visual appeal of the area outside the station, for the enjoyment of both residents and visitors
· Promote pride & ownership in the area and therefore keeping
· Help to improve interpersonal skills & reduce isolation
· Encourage self-confidence and belief in what can be achieved.
We have engaged Emma Law, a well established mosaic maker. She will lead workshops involving schools, the Seaview Wellbeing Centre, Gizmo DIY Theatre Company and the general public to design and complete the mosaic. We will also employ Leigh Dyer, a local blacksmith/artist, to make a movable frame for the mosaic to sit in and be attached to the wall.
The estimated cost for the whole project is around £4,000 (approximately 25% for materials, 50% for the movable frame and 25% for the professional facilitation). We have already raised £1,500 and are now looking for contributions to cover the remaining £2,500.
