in 2012 the belper well dressings were due to be on display during the second week of the belper art trail. as a group we decided to take part in the well dressings to experience the very traditional process of making a well.

the design came from an entry to the murmation project. in making the well we decided to forage for all the natural materials to make the well.

the process to make the well spanned a week and in total we had 21 people take part in making the well. these were both children and adults.
