I was pleased to be a small part of a community consultation recently, led by Lorna Jenner, regarding a new piece of public art to be situated near Flint Castle in North Wales. The consultation took place largely in an empty shop on Flint’s Church Street, which was completely and wonderfully transformed by Lisa Heledd Jones of StoryWorks into the ‘Story Shop’! Local residents came in to give their views, memories and stories of Flint and its residents. My involvement was a drop-in workshop at the Story Shop, in which I provided ready-made printing plates for visitors to print on my portable press; two workshops with pupils from Ysgol Maes Hyfryd and Ysgol Pen Coch; and a workshop with residents from Greenbank Villas, Flint, and The Quay project, Greenfield. An exhibition, which includes prints made during these workshops, is now at Flint Library until August 2018.
