Wells in Mosaic - A Lockdown Activity

Updated: May 23

Lockdown for mosaic artist Ruth Ames White has been spent mostly in her Wells studio working on the Wells in Mosaic.

Having completed all the design and preparatory work, and had the 6-metre diameter print-out made, she has made great progress with the next stage of the project – cutting and placing thousands of tiles which make up the intricate historical map of the city.

A spokesperson for the group steering the project said: ”We were delighted at our recent zoom meeting to see just how much Ruth has achieved. It looks even more beautiful than we could have imagined.”

Ruth is pleased with her work so far but added: “There is a great deal more to do. I have enough materials to keep me busy for a while but I am likely to need more tiles and the custom-made storage boxes before the lockdown is released when we will be able to hold more fundraising events.”

Local residents and businesses have already made some generous donations and sponsored several of the Blue Lias stones which will surround the mosaic. If anyone would like to donate or sponsor the project that would be greatly appreciated. More pictures of Ruth at work, and ways to donate can be seen at the mosaic website and the facebook page.
