Endon Well Dressing (2008)

As the May Bank Holiday Weather prepares to do its worst, Moorland Nursery School's children have been putting the finishing touches to a special project. Each year our nursery school children join with Endon's Well Dressing tradition. They make a clay based collage for display near the Well.

Our Well Dressing collage in the making

Our picture measures approximately 12 by 18 inches. Its construction follows the same principles as that surrounding Endon's Well: a clay base is decorated with moss, gravel, bark, flowers and leaves. The two notable differences between the main picture and ours are 1) the size - the main attraction measures more like 12 by 18 feet, not inches! 2) the age of those who have produced it! All of our 3 and 4 year old children have a hand in creating our collage.

"There's a Froggy in the middle"

This year's picture is.... erm... a Frog, of course ('though you may need to squint a bit to get it). See how we made our picture below. To view many of these photographs you will need a username and password.

The finished article has taken a week of frantically paced work to complete. Please be polite and agree the effort was well spent!
