Witches 400 brick waymarkers


Well the last community workshop is over we had a lovely day in the 'bowels' of the Judges Lodgings in Lancaster working with 7 participants. We looked at the medicinal side of the potions and spells said to be used to cure the ills of the folk and livestock of the time by the accused. These will be stained and send back to the brick factory in Chesterton to be fired and then displayed at the Platform Gallery from the 28th of July 2012.




The blocks will then be installed on a new walking route from Barrowford to Lancaster to commemorate the anniversay of the Pendle Witch trials in 1612







I would like to thank all that were involved with the workshops from Slaidburn, Barrowford and Lancaster the results are so much better than I could of imagined.
I really am pleased and proud of all of you. 
Can't wait to see them fired and installed.
