Impressions of the Past

'Creative Workshops in Words and Clay coming to Pontesbury. Celebrating the impressive Ironage heritage of the area, this project is in the final stages of planning. Look out for posters in the village for your chance to come and get involved and help create a lasting legacy of artworks for and by the community. Led by ceramic artist Ruth Gibson and poet Jean Atkin, both experienced and passionate about delivering community projects. All will be welcome.

Impressions of the Past offers free workshops in clay and poetry about the Iron Age landscape, and focusing on local landmarks such as the hillforts of Pontesford and Earl’s Hill. Jean and Ruth will lead active, practical workshops which will take place both outdoors and under cover, inspiring everyone to respond to these remarkable places and their long human histories.Our workshops will be taking place from mid-January to early March 2017 and following these we will be holding a celebration event in early April."
