Wild Roots Creative
Saturday & Sunday, the Park

Wild Roots Creative from Wirksworth is based at the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway station Wirksworth, where they have a lovely hub on one of the carriages. Wild Roots Creative is a Derbyshire Dales based social enterprise where opportunities are provided for people to experience arts, crafts, conservation, and culture to support people from across the Derbyshire Dales and further afield for improved health and social wellbeing. On offer are creative and positive experiences for people of all ages and abilities to help build confidence, skills, and networks with the aim of supporting people to lead healthier, more fulfilling and happier lives.
Wild Roots works with traditional crafts and pride themselves in sourcing local and environmentally friendly materials. Bonsall Arts Trail is extremely pleased to be hosting the Wild Roots Creative team over the weekend of 29th & 30th June this year, it promises to be a fabulous event and a chance for all to take part and enjoy creating on the park which is the main hub of the art trail.
