About this project

In 20I3 I was commissioned to produce twelve artworks for the Worsborough Centre, Worsborough, Barnsley; 3 panels were made for the wall above reception, 3 for the podiatry waiting area, 3 for the surgery waiting area, 1 for the wall by the lift, 1 for the children’s’ play area and a large scale artwork for the exterior wall in the relaxation area by the main entrance. A number of public engagement events and weaving workshops directly influenced the content of the artworks.
