Wyldwood is a publication-podcast. Made in collaboration with Wyldwood Arts, it is a collection of stories and artwork produced by ChatBack, an intergenerational group of artists.
The harbour upon the water, a stolen breath of air, the songs sung with fire, and family, roots in the earth. From a room in Monica Will's House, Bedminster, Bristol, the four elements have sprung a well of memories, places and portraits.
This collection of writing and artwork was produced by members of ChatBack, an intergenerational group of artists and writers, brought together by Wyldwood Arts CIC, with illustrations from Bristol-based artist, G R Hounsome.
A limited run of 60 risograph fold-ups were printed with City Edition Studio. Each publication was folded by hand in the Pervasive Media Studio and distributed, for free, to ChatBack members and friends on 31st May 2017 and to the public, from Bedminster Library, on 1st June 2017.
Wyldwood was commissioned by Wyldwood Arts CIC. To find out more about their work running intergenerational arts groups in the South West, go to their website, wyldwoodarts.co.uk
