At Trinity House this week painting was completed and fine detail added using different roof tile, door, window and ‘very posh’ fanlight stencils.
Following last weeks request we also added chimneys to the houses along with a wire aerial for Eleanor. Joyce had the great idea of using one of the spare chimneys as a door step – we’ll just need a really tiny donkey stone to polish it now!
Once the basic painting was completed it was time to add some individual details to the designs; Joyce added a detailed door with fanlight, Edna added some shrubs, grass and flowers to enhance her birdabode’s garden and Brian painted a redwing and wagtail on the side of his house – possibly the start of a graffiti career?
Working at Trinity house has been great fun and we were really pleased that the staff were so positive regarding the engagement by the residents, they’re planning to deliver more similar art activities and we’re hoping to be able to pop back soon and offer some advice and support.
Our last session was topped off when at lunchtime Edna made an impromptu speach in front of everyone thanking us and saying how much she’d enjoyed working on her bird box.
Thank you so much to everyone at Trinity House and hope to see you at the abirdabode exhibition soon to admire the completed Trinity Terrace!
