A Moving Tapestry of Suffolk

By Lewis Wickwar

Thanks so much to everyone who submitted videos and images for the video tapestry. I had a fun time piecing everything together and found lots of common themes between what people are observing at the moment – celebrations of your beautiful Suffolk surroundings with its ancient architecture, flowers in full bloom and buzzing with wildlife, evoking memories of people and events from times past.

A poem created as part of Dean Parkin’s writing activity (and kindly recorded by Dean for this video) is layered over footage of the Fressingfield Church grounds. Gloria in Beyton submitted a wonderful sketch of her house which we hear her describe. Memories of time spent growing up in Wingfield are layered over abstract footage of a family walk. We see and hear bees swarming around a poppy bed.

Hopefully you enjoy watching, and, if you’re not lucky enough to live in this environment, that it might briefly transport you there for a moment!
