    Events at this Venue


    Find out more about this ancient Derbyshire custom by watching the well dressers working on the dressing. A working drawing is scaled to full size on tracing paper. The outline is transferred to the clay by pricking through the paper. The design is outlined in wool then the detail filled in with petals and other natural materials.
