We have some lovely art at our Ripple Retreat – all of it has a reason to be here –
over the coming months I shall share with you what we have.
Starting with a very important piece of art – our collaboration with Edinburgh artist, Wendy Helliwell.
Wendy took a group of our Young Ambassadors and gave them a challenge – they were to collect favourite things and make a picture out of them and include a letter that meant something to them.
She held a workshop at her house last summer and worked with the YA’s on their pictures. After she had all their pictures in, she took some favourite items of mine and worked them into the main picture ( a Edinburgh Military Tattoo ticket,my business card and the Zoe shooting star) – It was so good to see the final picture and to be honest it was a suprise how she had worked her magic on the YA’s pictures. They had all been so different I wasn’t sure how she was going to bring them all together but for sure she has. Wendy has magic and the picture is stunning. Every single guest and visitor has asked about it and been wow’ed by it.
Thank you Wendy for all your help and well done to our Young Ambassadors too. What a special gift for our Ripple Retreat.
