    Details

    Find out more about this ancient Derbyshire custom by watching the well dressers working to dress the well. The designs are drawn on paper and laid over wet clay. The image is ‘pricked out’ using cocktail sticks to make dots along each line, then joined up like a dot-to-dot puzzle. The outline is overlaid with wool and the picture is created using all fresh and dried natural materials sourced locally.
