Love Letters to Whitworth Park Exhibition

If you were at the Whitworth Art Gallery on Saturday 22 July you may have seen an exhibition in the Art Garden.

Housed in ARC Stockport's pop-up dome, the work exhibited  was the culmination of a short project, Love Letters to Whitworth Park.

Love Letters to Whitworth Park ran over a four week period. Workshops were led by an artist from ARC who worked with three groups including Handmade (the Whitworth's older people's craft
workshops) to create artwork inspired by the Park and Art Garden. During the sessions participants discovered that one of the regular attendees of Handmade had an uncle who was head gardener at Whitworth Park.
