Stone for site 8 being carved in the village playground

Sculpture Residency

In 2002, Sites of Meaning hosted a scultpure residency with Wirksworth based artist Amanda Wray. Amanda worked in the village playground for two months producing the stone for site 8, while interacting with many residents and visitors.
The residency worked closely with Youlgrave Primary School who visited Amanda working in the village. Workshops were arranged with the School where Aamnda helped each pupil produce a small stone sculptue.
The Sculpture Residency was funded by East Midlands Arts (now part of the Arts Council of England) and Derbyshire Dales District Council.
