About
River Roots is a collaborative intergenerational creative project taking place between schools and vulnerable adult groups across Herefordshire.

Led by artist Josie Rogerson with support from artist Lucy Baxendale and Livy Powell, the sessions include working with woodland stories, mythical creatures, puppets and costume.

The sessions took place with St Mary's Primary School, Fownhope in May, Madley and Dulas Court in May, and Madley and Blackmarston School in June. Some of the artwork made in the sessions was part of the Wye Valley River Festival. The festival took place 5-20 May 2018!

This summer, we will be holding free family art workshops! These workshops are open to the public, and include the chance to try mask making and painting a wall mural!
