The AccessArt Village On Tour: Mansfield Central Library

Many thanks to Nottinghamshire County Council’s Inspire, Culture, Learning and Libraries for facilitating the AccessArt Village in Nottinghamshire.

Their dynamic Inspire Arts Service shared the original call for participation in AccessArt Village across libraries and schools in Nottinghamshire.

This grew to be one of AccessArt’s most exciting collaborations and resulted in stitched work donated from across the county and across generations.

Many thanks to embroiderers from Burton Joyce, Carlton, Hucknall, Kimberley, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Southwell and Worksop Libraries, who joined in – and all 56 pupils form year 4 at Berry Hill Primary School in Mansfield who “thoroughly enjoyed using fabric and stitches to explore their settlements topic”.

A special thank you to everyone in the county who participated; for their generous contributions and sharing in the building of the AccessArt Village.

AccessArt is absolutely delighted that Mansfield Central Library are hosting this very special, collaboration, on its tour around the country. Many thanks to the Inspire Arts team for making it happen, and a special thank you to Sarah Baker who coordinated the project.
