'A Scottish Dinner for Fermywoods Friends' was facilitated during a student trip of Gray's School of Art Students to Fermynwoods arts organisation.
Artist and lecturer, David Blyth was artist in residence with the organisation in 'From Scotland to Corby'; working with the Friends of Hazel and Thoroughsale Woods to develop a project that celebrated cultural heritage and wildlife of the local urban woodland.
As part of the residency he provided a learning opportunity for students at Gray's School of Art to visit Corby and engage in the project.
'A Scottish Dinner for Fermynwoods Friends.' was a dinner of Scottish foods inviting the members of Fermynwoods friends scheme to attend. Accompanying dinner was a text written by Rachel Grant and included the work of Aberdeen based writer Shane Strachan. The text acted as a short introduction to our visit and began to unpick some commonalities and differences in how industry shapes a place; Corby in steel and Aberdeen in oil.
Dinner Comrades: David Blyth, Eleanor Cheetham, Daryl Anderson, Mairi Morrison, Marie Hamrock, Jack Thorn.
