Buller Square Phoenix Project

Latest:

Buller Square Phoenix Project Art and Writing Exhibition, Crediton Fire Station Community Room from Friday 28th June to Friday 6th July (closed 2nd and 3rd July), 11.30am to 5pm.

On Saturday 29th June there will be a Fire Station Open Day to launch the exhibition.
This is an exhibition of Printmaking and Writing that explores the history surrounding Buller Square, Crediton. Buller Square is one of the oldest properties in the town and was severely damaged by fire in January 2012. After the exhibition the work will be shown in other venues around the town.

Background:

Join a new project with Crediton Arts Centre exploring the history of Buller Square – one of the oldest parts of Crediton that was badly damaged in a major fire last year.
We are looking for young people over 12 years and adults to join this exciting project.

We will :
• Investigate the heritage of Buller Square,
• Find out about St Boniface
• Discover the History of General Sir Redvers Buller
• Make visits to explore the archives of the Devon Records Office and Downes House

We will make our own archives, investigations and records to inspire us.
You can then choose to join in a series of either writing workshops or printmaking workshops in response to what we have uncovered. These will run at Crediton Arts Centre on the following days :

Writing :
Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings : 16/17 March, 6/7 April, 13/14 April, 27/28 April and 11/12 May.
Printmaking :
Saturdays 10 am to 4pm on 9th March, 23rd March, 6th April, 20th April and 4th May.

The writing and the art will be displayed during the Crediton Summer Festival. The project is fully funded by The Heritage Lottery but we ask for a contribution of £15 per person.
