We worked with glass artist Alex Blakey to create a series of beautiful glass tiles and hanging pieces for display.  

Stanley Benn of Sharing Memories shows off his tile based on memories of working in the Merchant Navy

The theme of the project was special memories and all the participants learned a number of skills from painting on acetate to preparing a glass tile for firing.  We were joined by participants from Enfield Down, a unit for adults recovering from mental health issues; adults with learning difficulties from The Bridgewood Trust and children from Lydgate Special School for this project. Everyone came together to celebrate a mini exhibition of their work at Hope Bank.
