This project has altered slightly and will now take place in the warmth and
comfort of Greystones Coffee House rather than boggy water-logged fields!
Thoughts from the residents of Patterdale and Glenridding have been
gathered, responding to the place they live. Children at Patterdale Primary
School have produced words, poems and drawings during workshops.
These words were initially to be written onto real sheep, which would then
be skilfully herded to form sentences. Instead we have a flock of 8
nearly-real sheep who have offered their services to parade the sentences at
Greystones whilst onlookers are invited to add to the flock with their own
responses, play sheep word games, and herd their own sentences.
An exhibition of the children's drawings and words will be held at
Greystones Coffee House and Gallery on Wednesday 6th October. On Thursday
7th October from 2pm there will be an afternoon of sheep word games as well
as extremely good coffee and cakes to keep out the cold and rain.
