WORKING ON A NEW VILLAGE PRODUCT. THE CARAVAN POT.


public works got to know Peter Mutschler from PS2 in Belfast during the Rhyzom network, and Peter works a lot with Anne Marie Dillon form the village of Ballykinler. From the first meeting we had the idea to get involved in making a village product in Ballykinlar, with Anne Marie and her great group of Forever Young pensioners. Visits and workshops followed, and we're proudly announcing the making of a model, which will lead us to the Caravan Pot. In admiration of the mobile community centre, that Anne Marie put down in the village, using a redecorated caravan. Why? To get the community space they wanted but couldn't get through administrative means.

The white glazed caravan pot will be decorated, tatooed and made pretty by anyone from Ballykinler, and will be on offer during the village fete on Saturday 28th May 2011.

This is also all part of the International Village Shop and the wider Village Works programme for the village.
