Loving Earth - Healing Through Creativity, has involved the Loving Earth Project and a local refugee support group of volunteers and women and children from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan who are resettling in Richmondshire.
The project has been led by community textile artist, Kathryn Guy.
A community textile project is a central part of involvement in the Loving Earth Project as the process of making a textile panel creates space for reflection and opportunities for conversations and development of skills.
Over the past year, Kathryn has delivered textile workshops to local women and children resettled in the area, where all have engaged successfully with the themes of the Loving Earth Project. These have produced many wonderful examples of creative upcycling.
The work of the group will be exhibited along with a selection of textile panels on loan from the Loving Earth National Project Archive.
As well as showcasing the work of the project, the exhibition will also include an artistically curated journey from beginning to end, demonstrating face to face textile workshops with their specialist tutor, Kathryn.
There will be visual graphics of workshops, participants enjoying time in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, meeting crafters in the local community, sharing and developing new skills and supporting mental health and wellbeing.
The project has been made possible through NYCC Resettlement and Stronger Communities funding.
