Make Your Way to Chatelherault - From Quarter with Walking Sticks

Walking sticks, 'Salmons of Knowledge' and more, with Nadia Rossi.

Make Your Way explored and highlighted access routes into Chatelherault County Park, going from Hamilton, Larkhall and Quarter. Six artists were given the chance to undertake residencies with local groups groups including: Hamilton Ramblers, Larkhall and District Volunteers, Universal Connections Larkhall, Quarter Primary School, Clydesdale Colts and Blantyre Cubs. The artists' work culminated in Celebration of the Land events held across Chatelherault and the surrounding area. 

Exploring from Quarter to Chatelherault was artist, Nadia Rossi. Nadia did two sessions working with Quarter Primary School pupils in P3-5, getting them to think about words and maps of their local outdoors, and to make objects which would help them interact with nature. The pupils made brilliant walking sicks and viewframers, then were able to get out and explore on a particularly snowy day. 

Nadia developed the work with the primary pupils into brilliant coasters, 'Salmon of Knowledge', and maps for the Wassail of Larkhall and Quarter, led by herself and Jenny O'Boyle. The coasters also featured patterns by designs done with the Blantyre Cubs. These items were all showcased in the CAVLP Land, Life and Water Exhibition at Chatelherault.
