Crafting Community (

In 2017 a new  group Crafting Community has been formed, to continue to develop folk arts and craft based activities in our local community. This continues on from the previous activities archived in this section which took place between 2015-2017 & which were instigated / project managed by AVA / local artist Scylla Magda.


Crafting Community members working on creating a mosaic design for the plinth in Handsworth Park. Grasses and leaves found around the lake have been used in the design idea, in order to create an artwork that looks natural and organic, enabling the plinth to blend in with it’s surroundings.
Commissioned by Handsworth Creative as a part of  Handsworth Park Arts Trail 2017.
