Heath Well Dressing under Construction

About

Find out more about this ancient custom by watching well dressers working to dress the well. Find out how such intricate and detailed pictures can be created using only natural materials – berries, seeds, leaves, flowers…

The artist creates the design which is then traced onto the clay. We then ‘wool’ the outline and begin ‘colouring in’ the picture. We first use dry materials such as peppercorns, followed by sweetcorn and finally petals, leaves and other fresh materials.
