The project was officially launched on 30th August 2013 with a fascinating talk and demonstration by guest speaker Derek Palmer, an important local figure and historian, as well as a practising well-dresser whose family history is intertwined with the custom. He told us about his personal journey through his life time of making well-dressings, about the history of the practice, and how the hand-craft is steeped in tradition and of special significance to Derbyshire. There was also an exhibition of a selection of his most recent artworks, his own modern-day interpretation of the well-dressing tradition.

We were very pleased to see so many community members attending, who also had the opportunity to find out more about the project, and to register their interest in avenues for involvement.
