Using traditional Japanese folding techniques and beautiful textured papers, members of the Winster and Elton Luncheon Club worked on a project with artist Jane Wells of Junction Arts to create their own book.
Decorated with lino print boarders the books are filled with photographs and recollections about key moments and memorable events in each participant’s life.
The completed journals are on display in our reception area alongside an original poster for the Winster Wakes designed by local artist Rose Foster and photographs of Winster and Elton supplied by the Picture the Past project which is based at the record office.
We are delighted to have these poignant, delicate books on display as part of this year’s Derbyshire Literature Festival and in celebration of Made in Derbyshire 2015.
Do come along and take a look, they will be with us until the end of May.
