Konvertible returned for Christmas here at Bedford Creative Arts, with participants making decorations for a whispering Christmas tree. The decorations with a twist were for the annual St Paul’s Church Christmas Tree Festival. Local designer Lisa Tilley (www.uoldbag.com) demonstrated techniques for making handmade decorations and Andy D’Cruz (www.outputarts.com), a London based audio artist, invited participants to record their festive memories both good and bad. By weaving headphones into the decorations we produced a tree that not only looked beautiful but recounted memories of past Christmas’ for those who listened carefully.

Over 20 people came to the two afternoon workshops that took place on Wednesday 23rd November and Saturday 26th November at Bedford Creative Arts and the ‘Public Presentation’ of the trees, in aid of the Bedford Hospital charities and St Pauls Church was our entry into the Bedford Christmas Tree Festival at St Paul’s http://www.stpaulschurchbedford.org.uk/ between 30th November and 4th December.
