Join us on the Monday 8th May Bank Holiday for a double activity event of free carpentry with Peter Tree and ceramics workshops with Greenfield Pottery!

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.

The activity will take place beside the play area

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 the Monday 8th May, expert woodcarver and Boston-born Peter Tree will be leading carpentry taster activities, while the wonderful Greenfield Pottery will show you how to make a ceramic heraldic shield, thinking about history and heritage as the activity takes place nearby to Hussey Tower, one of the proposed locations for the artwork trail. 

During the month of May, you can get involved in free activities at some of the proposed artwork locations., as well as visiting the May Fair to have a wonderful day out for all ages. Enjoy being outdoors, take care of wildlife, learn some new skills and be part of the creation of a new art trail in Boston.
