Friday 9th November
Ladies and Gentlemen of the internet, I am really pleased to be able to tell you that Ossett Observer has been awarded Arts Council Funding for our winter projects.
We are absolutely thrilled as it will allow us to carry on making work in Ossett and to continue to develop audiences and participants for our work.
This funding will allow us to do 3 things.
1/ To commission Tony Wade (Sheep Maker Extraordinaire, Faceless Arts) and Cassandra Kilbride (Yarnstorm Artist) to make the Jack Frost Sculpture that will form the centrepiece of our #1000snowflakes installation. We have already received support from Building Ossett Better who gave us some start up funds for this project, which allowed us to design and print Flyers and spend some time promoting the project. But now we can make the installation we want, to showcase the beautiful woolwork that Ossett people are doing for us.
These are small things but I hope they will make a difference to the activities we can provide in the town, thank you for getting involved.
