From Vicky Tyrell, our Schools Chaplain:
"I'm just letting you know about a little joint project that I'm doing at Westleigh, and trying to involve people across the churches as well.
We are going to make a really colourful outdoor display in the Westleigh outdoor reflection area. This outhouse sits in the corner of the playground and is a lovely structure but could do with some colour and movement. Hence the pom pom backdrop idea!
The display will be made from lots and lots of single colour pom poms strung together; as per this picture of flowers done in a similar way:
The pom poms can be any size and shade of colour, as long as the colours within it are just a single wool and not a mixed colour.
I am hoping that people from across the circuit churches would be able to make these from whatever wool they have at home. I am happy to collect when they're ready, or they can be dropped off at Westleigh school reception. We plan to assemble the artwork in February 2021 so there's still time to make the pom poms over the darker winter months
I also have plans to do a collaborative art installation at Bedford, but decided let's do one project at a time and then we can truly try to involve people across the circuit in a unifying exercise each time. I think this reflects the way the schools work and support each other across the trust".
