Old Town Bloom

Posted by Claire Pitt on

May 7, 2014

Hazlehurst Studios are working alongside Town Team Development to bring some blooms into the Old Town, Runcorn. Working with community groups and businesses in the old town we aim to bring groups together by creating an oasis of flowering tins made by collaborating with artists and several community groups. This will be achieved by running a series of workshops in schools and with community groups as a vehicle to brighten and raise the profile of the area as somewhere people care about, as well as passing on some of the valuable skills of art and flower planting, to name a few. The location of the tins will be kept under the lid for now, whilst we sort out the logistics.
