Crich Tramway Well Dressing

Mon 6th July 2020 @ 11:00 am - Fri 10th July 2020 @ 3:30 pm

Dressing the design

Come along and have a go and helping to create our Well Dressing!

Well Dressing is unique to Derbyshire and once created, the well dressings from Crich will be displayed at various venues around the village for viewing.

Help us to create an intricate mosaic using natural materials such as leaves, moss, flower petals and leaves on a bed of prepared clay. Each one can take several days to make, and the process involves soaking a wooden frame and ‘puddling’ the clay prior to creating a design.

You’ll be guided by our staff and volunteers in the process, which takes plenty of patience.
