Watch this space for news about future events!

The artists had carefully selected and printed the text and had already placed some of the phrases up through the town in shop windows before the start of the session: Orchid Clothing, St Margaret’s Hospice Shop, The Bakery, Art Tea Zen Café and many of the Library windows. The group went on a trail to find these texts. We then taught the group how to place them, with the final texts being put up in the Library and in the public phone box – the focus of the young people working with such concentration to complete the work demonstrated their satisfaction with what we had made. Going as a group to the Town Garden in Langport, the second part of the workshop involved studying the recently installed pump as both a piece of industrial heritage and as a work of art, creating sculpture out of materials in response to the place, having ideas about the space and future use, and listing important features and opportunities.
