The “Buildings of Droitwich” Ceramic Mural restoration progression

Thanks to funding from the National Lottery, Wychavon District Council and Droitwich Town Council the Droitwich Arts Network have reached the halfway stage to restoring Droitwich Spa’s national treasure. This colourful and intricate work of art has been removed from the shopping centre wall in order to replace broken ceramic relief’s and to strengthen the panels. Good progress is being made at the ‘Black Dog’ factory where the mural was originally made 42 years ago by artist Philippa Threlfall.

Over the last two months artists have been designing art work to fill the gap on the wall left by removal of the mural. This has now been completed as shown below. 

Bring your art in for the Hanbury Hall 2018 exhibition

Hanbury Hall, the National Trust property near Droitwich Spa, opens its Long Gallery doors for another Droitwich Arts Network exhibition. With a success of previous years, this is the most popular exhibition in the year and both artists and visitors. It seems to be the pinnacle of DAN’s artistic year.

‘Behind the Scenes’ tour at Norbury Theatre

On Tuesday 11th September our DAN Meeting took the form of a ‘Behind the Scenes Tour’ of the Norbury Theatre. Around 20 of our members attended and what a fantastic evening it was!

After a short introduction with a brief history of the building itself, we were divided into three groups and each took a different route around the theatre, getting to see all areas of the building and sometimes looking in on rehearsals. The tour took us to the basement, a room filled to the brim with all sorts of props for every occasion! We also looked at the costume department, rooms upon rooms full of every conceivable item – there was even a whole room dedicated just to hats! We could have spent hours looking through all the scenery, clothes, furniture and other props.
