Werrington

The Werrington workshop took place at the Werrington Community Library and Well-being Centre in early June 2022. The workshops were led by guest artist Charlie Walker of Caverswall and by Emma Dawson Varughese, the lead artist of Knotted Identities. The artists worked with a group of volunteers from the Centre including Wendy Sandbrook who was instrumental in getting the group together. The workshops explored Werrington-based Staffordshire Moorlands identities, the ‘windy’ landscape, Wetley Moor Common and what it means to belong to the Moorlands when you are a stone’s throw from the City of Stoke on Trent.
