Winds of Change Workshop

Wednesday, 31 October 2012

This year the Winds of Change Diaries project has been run as a part of the Cromer and Sheringham Arts Festival.

A series of sketchbooks have been left in three locations along the Norfolk coast for members of the public to record their memories in. The Diaries have been placed at the Beach Shelter in West Runton, the Cliff Top Café in Overstrand and at the Beach Hut Café in Mundesley.

The focus for the Diaries this time is the changing coast line and how people have experienced it, today and in the past. People who know the area have been encouraged to write down and draw their memories of the coast and of the communities in the area.

On Sunday the 4th of November the project is running a drop in workshop at the Henry Blogg Lifeboat Museum in Cromer, where the Diaries from this year and previous years will be available for viewing. There will also be the opportunity to add more contributions to the project, so please bring along any photographs, stories or memories you may have.

There will also be the chance to create mosaics from natural materials; to help with mapping the changes in the coastline over the years; and to explore maps and photographs from the past.

The Workshop will be run on a drop in basis between 11am and 4pm on Sunday the 4th of November.

The organisers ask that a voluntary donation of £2 per person is made to cover the rent for the day.
