Uniting to light up Artweeks
1:10pm Wednesday 16th May 2012 in Oxford
People from all walks of life in Summertown have been getting together to show off their artistic talent for Artweeks.
About 100 schoolchildren and residents helped create some stained-glass windows to decorate St Michael and All Angels Church in Lonsdale Road.
Sessions were held for children from The Cherwell School, Summer Fields School and St Edward’s School, and a family day attracted people of all ages.
They created images on acetate with acrylic paint which were attached to three trellises.
It was the brainchild of Old Marston artist Naomi Goldsmith, 65, pictured, who was asked to come up with an idea by the Rev Gavin Knight, the vicar of St Michael and All Angels. She said: “It was fantastic to see the community come together.
“It didn’t matter how good they are – everyone’s work is up there and the whole is something really special.”
