A Necklace of Stars – Project

Covid-19 Creative Opportunity

Would you like to take part in a new project making an embroidered quilt with other people from across Derbyshire?

If you are over 65 and live in Derbyshire, artist Lois Blackburn and poet Philip Davenport can provide creative packs, full of ideas and materials direct to you in the post.

Whether you are experienced and confident in embroidery, or a complete beginner, everyone’s contribution is welcome.

A Necklace of Stars is a collaboration between housebound, isolated older people in Derbyshire, arthur+martha, Arts Derbyshire DCC Public Health and Derbyshire County Council Home Library Service.

When life returns to normal the project will go into it’s next phase, working together in people's own homes, with occasional meet ups in libraries across Derbyshire. A poem and song soundtrack will be inspired by lullabies. Text, image, dialogue, crafts and music will all combine. Lullabies bring calm and comfort, and also tell insightful stories that pass on the depth of human experience from generation to generation.

If you are interested in taking part in this project or know of someone who might enjoy getting involved, please contact Sally Roberts at sallyartsderbyshire@gmail.com
