Wreath Making

We had another good crowd of people of all ages for our popular annual free wreath-making session with some great creations to take home!

Marking Places

It was a pleasure to work with local people to research, design and make three commemorative markers for beautiful Burgess Park. The project included: a heritage talk to hear ideas and identify sites for the markers; looking at photographs, maps and stories from the area; making models, designing and making the markers. We are delighted to have worked with the community to mark the following sites in the park: Market Gardens, North Camberwell Radical Club, the Foundry and other works. Thanks to Big Lottery and Bankside, Borough and Walworth Cleaner Greener Safer for  funding this.
