Prue Thimbleby & Torfaen MIND

Prue Thimbleby has been working with MIND at the Pontypool Wellbeing Centre for the Aerial project.

I have worked with a group of 8 wonderful people at MIND in Pontypool. They have really enjoyed the creative process and it has sparked all sorts of ideas for them about how to be creative in other parts of their lives.

Prue has taught a technique known as tension tray, where straight willow sticks are woven across a willow circle. Prue and the group turned the process into a piece of art by wrapping sticks in recycled fabric and wool to represent their reflections on life’s journey.

This workshop idea was one I developed for this project and I have been really pleased with how it has worked out. It is a process that can be achieved with stunning end results by people who have no prior experience of willow. It has increased people’s confidence in their ability to make quality art and at the same time incorporate very personal memories and some of their own identity.
