Community Projects

At Pink House Arts we believe crafts bring people together. And designing and creating a special piece of artwork for a community space is a wonderful way to channel everyone’s imagination and creativity.

Knitting to remember

One of our community projects was working with five parish churches to create a special commemoration to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

We helped people from local villages to design a knitted poppy wreath, each of which could be personalised with the name of a serviceman commemorated on one of the village war memorials. Local knitters and embroiderers were recruited and regular coffee mornings were held to enable everyone to meet and work together.

The finished wreaths were displayed in the five churches on Armistice Day 2018 and continue to be displayed each year at Remembrance Day services and events.

Tree of Life

Inspired by Gustav Klimt’s lavish gold and mosaic Tree of Life. Our own Pink House interpretations provide opportunities for individuals to work together on large displays, whilst sharing experiences.

We have helped different communities, groups and hospitals to create beautiful trees. Each conveys sentiments and inspiration for the viewer to discover.

We’re all the same, we’re all different
