Residents are being invited to a display of Burntwood art this summer.

Lichfield District Council’s arts development team invites everyone to see a fantastic display of local Burntwood art this summer.

I was here, I woz ‘ere is Burntwood’s second open art exhibition. It will feature a whole range of art – such as paintings, sculpture and photography – by artists who have a local connection to Burntwood. The artists were asked to enter pieces based on somehow leaving their mark on the world, or a view of somewhere they have visited, to show they were/woz here!   

There will also be a series of half day workshops for all ages. These include master classes on self portrait, animation, baseball cap design, graffiti in clay, oil painting, creating shoes out of maps, photography, and song writing for all the family.

Celia Houghton, Arts Development Officer for Lichfield District Council, said:

“This year’s collection of art has blown me away. It’s a stunning and thought provoking exhibition, and I hope lots of people will come to Chase Terrace Technical College to take a look. The workshops are also a great opportunity to have a go at something creative with expert guidance – for free. Also, join us on Saturday 1 August to see a mobile Olympics museum.” 

The exhibition and workshops are held at Chase Terrace Technical College from July 25 to August 1 (except on July 26), from 10am to 4.30pm.

The workshops are totally free but need to be booked first, and all children under 11 must be supervised by an adult. To book your space please call Celia Houghton on 01543 308224 or email
