Dot to Dot Above Ground Level based at 42 Richard Stannard House, Bridge Street, Blyth, started 5th August 2014 and will be running until 31st October 2014.  As part of this socially engaged project, I have been on site every Thursday delivering sessions involving Mail Art.  Each day has brought a seperate theme and focus, with ideas inspired by projects published on the International Union of Mail Artists website and the blogger site Mail Art Projects.
