Gilmerton Community Centre
Autumn- Winter 2015
Age group: 4-13 and 70+
We worked with youth clubs and other groups to create a large shared decoration for the community centre using wet and dry felting and willow and tissue sculpture. The final wreath brought together small pieces made by individual people to create one large piece, like small parts of a big picture. The willow structure was constructed by the younger youth clubs whilst the ‘petals’ and centre were made by the older groups. We called this project the community wreath because people of all ages and abilities came together to make something for the community to enjoy.
During this project we also made lanterns from willow and tissue and felt bunting that were used to decorate the community centre for the annual Christmas Fayre.
