Join us on Tuesday 9th May for a create session weaving with willow, led by expert Lincolnshire artist Alison Walling!

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.

Alison not only creates beautiful willow art work but she also delivers willow courses, basketry, commissions, talks, works with schools, and grows the willow! And you can take part in this workshop for free, creating nature inspired artwork for the trail using this natural material.
