For over 30 years OAM has visited the Derbyshire village of Tissington during their annual Well Dressings festival to show a presentation entitled, ‘The Making and the Message of the Well Dressings’. Each video explains something of the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to create these natural collages whilst using the Bible stories, they traditionally depict, to explain the greatest message in the world. We have had the privilege of showing this short presentation to tens of thousands over the years.
Sadly, there are no Well Dressings in Tissington again this year, owing the coronavirus situation. However, we have put together another special edition of ‘The Making and the Message of the Well Dressings’.
Previous editions of ‘The Making and the Message of the Well Dressings’ can be found here:
2nd Edition (short version) featuring some Youlgreave Well Dressings
1st Edition (long version) including Youlgreave Well Dressings
The 6th (and current) edition is available to purchase on DVD here. (This edition is not online)
A leaflet entitled ‘The Message of the Well Dressings’ can be downloaded here.
