ArtSpace has made a giant 5 pointed star to be used as part of “The Moon Rising” the closing spectacle of the wonderful La Lune story.
on Saturday and Thursday Jane from ArtSpace visited the Hurdsfield Community Library to get ideas and images for decorating the Hurdsfield point of the star.
Working with Hurdsfield Community Group, on the theme “The Faces of Hurdsfield” Jane is asking the question “What does Hurdsfield look like?”
We are now starting to put the faces of Hurdsfield on our point, there’s still time to add your image. If you are too shy to put your face on or draw a portrait: then just come and draw round your hand
Below are some youthful images of the Faces of Hurdsfield, On Saturday morning (11th June) Jane will be calling again to finish collecting imges from local residents.
