Join us on the 1st May Bank Holiday in the gardens of Centenary Methodist Church, in Boston, for free woodcarving activities with expert woodcarver Peter Tree, as part of our Town Jewels activity!

Town Jewels is an arts and nature programme led by Scott House and those who access it, to create a series of public artworks and wildlife objects in a trail around Boston’s outdoor spaces, some of which you may not have noticed before.

Everyone in Boston is welcome to be involved in the creation of the trail.

As part of the programme, several artists have had residencies at Scott House and created artworks with those who access the centre.

Now we are taking the creativity into the town.

On May 1st, the workshop and activities will work towards creating a pleasant place to sit and reflect in the Church grounds, that will add to the existing additions the Church team install during the seasons, such as nativity figures at Christmas and at Easter, a cross is kept bare until it is filled with flowers and blooms as a sign of hope. We want each of the Town Jewels installments to unique and relevant to the place and are happy to be working closely with the Centenary Methodist team to create this.
