Brixworth Country Park Mosaic Day

On the May Bank Holiday Monday artist Carole Miles took several panels to Brixworth Country Park for a free, open mosaic making day which was open to all ages and abilities. The room was spacious and airy with a great view of the park and the lake.

Rangers Chris Howe, Dan Hurst and the team did a fantastic job of promoting this day, what's more it was beautiful weather, perfect for a day in the park, which ensured that Carole had a steady stream of participants throughout the day.

We were working on a panel called Spring / Summer featuring two spring lambs captured in a photograph by Kate Dyer in a field near Maidwell during last years walks and a photograph of Suki Carder photographing a field of acid yellow oilseed rape from a different walk. The original photos can be found here and here

We had local visitors who use the park regularly

and fabulous visitors from further afield

family groups

and individuals

It was wonderful to share the stories from our the participants, one man had been taking part in a Triathlon the day before and came with his tiny daughters, there was a huge family group who's ages spanned from 8 months to eighty who'd travelled from the north for their annual meet-up with friends from Towcester. It was a great opportunity for all generations to sit together, enjoy the company whilst adding tiles to the growing mosiac. Many thanks to all who came and took part. A big thank you too for all those who sorted through the mixed box of tiles whilst waiting for a free space on the panel.
