This is an initiative being launched in Kirklees to introduce younger people to the fascinating heritage of waymarking, in a fun way, through stone-carving workshops, poetry writing, painting, modelling, video making, blogging… and to demonstrate the relevance of that knowledge and those skills today.
STOP PRESS !! October 2013 – We’ve been awarded funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund as well as the Getty Foundation and individual donors – you can see more information about the programme on our project website, Beyond-Graffiti www.beyond-graffiti.co.uk You can also ‘like’ our facebook page, Beyond-Graffiti, which has lots of photo albums, and you can follow us on twitter, @storiesinstone.
A hundred young people in Kirklees participated in the five-sessions programme which ran until November 2014. We also held art and craft exhibitions at Oakwell Hall and The Packhorse Gallery in Huddersfield throughout July 2014, themed Milestones and Waymarking.
