About

An ancient custom that's only found in Derbyshire. At its simplest, well dressing is the art of decorating springs and wells with pictures made from natural materials.

The best way to find out how we do this is to come along and watch us at work. We use dried materials, fresh leaves and flower petals and anything else that nature provides.
