Get Creative With Sandy Lane – Creative Consultation Workshops and Events

Sandy Lane Free Summer Fun A5sandy lane 1

During the summer 2014 people living and working around Sandy Lane Shopping Centre got involved in West Lancashire Borough Council’s “Get Creative with Sandy Lane” project and made the shopping centre a more colourful and inviting place to shop, work and visit.

 I was commissioned to facilitated a period of creative consultation planned at inspiring people to come up with ideas to improve the image of the centre. I worked with al the children at St Richards Primary school where they created drawing exploring their favourite things about Sandy Lane. I then digitally collaged these images to create large posters.

Looking to create a festival feel whilst also gaining feedback I facilitate two days of bunting workshops with the public. Local residents were asked to decorate a piece of bunting with words and images aimed at finding out how they feel about the centre and exploring, in a creative way, how the centre and its surroundings can be improved. These were then hung from the rafters.

A great time was had with all ages weaving recyclable materials into fencing to explore ideas of nature, renewable resources and aspirations for a clean and beautiful environment. The finished piece was hung near the car park and really created a joyous bright feel to the railings.

A huge thanks for the energy and creative spirit of everyone who participated in this part of this project. I look forwards to seeing Sandy Lane get its well deserved make over.
