It was great to see some of the designs made during the Ouseburn Community Project recycled into colourful emblems decorating Lime street for the Ouseburn DIY Streets. Part of Ouseburn Futures, Ouseburn DIY Streets has been working with Sustrans, Xsite Architecture and Roots & Wings to try out proposed road changes during the Festival Weekend using decorative paint, straw bails and much more.
The Ouseburn Community Project culminated in a display of hand made, coloured brick work, embellishing the Ouseburn Farm during the Festival weekend.
The Ouseburn Community Project is made up of a number of local residents using print related techniques and processes to to capture aspects to the Ouseburn Valleys character and history. The project took place over four months and was based at the Ouseburn Farm. Contributing to the International Print Biennale, the bricks will be on display after the festival weekend at 36 Lime Street Gallery August 2 & 3 and 9 & 10.
