The Ouseburn Community Project is a programme of creative sessions exploring the heritage of the valley and its current unique cultural environment. Based at the Ouseburn Farm, the project has used research gathered from local resources, such as the farm & Ouseburn Trust and conversations with people who work and used to work in the valley and those that live near by. This research is slowly being transformed into printed ideas and then transferred into creative brick designs.
The Ousenurn Culvert, also known to locals as the ‘The Cully’ is here being transformed into a colourful brick design, ready to be fired at Birtley’s Ibstock Brick Factory.
The farm, its animals, birds and environment is a natural source of inspiration for participants, using plants, weeds and leaves from the fields as images to work from.
