The Wenlock Legacy – a creative response to place

Published 3 October, 2012

A new way of looking and wandering/wondering about place with writer Paul Evans and artist Sheilagh Jevons

Walkers Group

In October 2012, Much Wenlock based, internationally exhibited artist Sheilagh Jevons and Much Wenlock based poet, playwright, broadcaster and The Guardian Country Diary columnist Paul Evans, were brought together for an innovation, cross art-form opportunity for members of the public to respond to The Much Wenlock Public Art Trail.

A high quality opportunity for people to walk and wander/wonder the surroundings of Much Wenlock took place, exploring the stories and ecology of the area, followed by a 2-day creative writing and painting and mixed media workshop. Thirty participants were able to develop their own creative response to the landscape and history of Much Wenlock, taking inspiration from the Public Art Trail. The workshops took place at William Brookes School and the opportunity was made possible with support from; The William Penny Brookes Foundation, Arts Council England, Shropshire Council and Much Wenlock Town Council.

Here are some examples of the work that came from those workshops:
