Pieces of My Jigsaw Exhibition

Overview

Overview

Helping people living with dementia to continue telling their stories. Rosie and Chris Anderson are passionate about enabling people living with dementia to continue telling their stories. ‘Pieces of My Jigsaw’ is a project which does just that, through conversations, illustrations and songs.

It seeks to encourage families who have a loved one living with dementia to record their memories creatively in order to continue sharing them for as long as possible. From 15th – 23rd February we will be displaying the story of the project, which includes information about the participants and their fascinating lives, the original artist’s books that were made as a result of their conversations and a shortened version of the Arts Council funded film about the whole process, with its soundtrack of original songs written by Rosie.

The entire ‘Pieces of My Jigsaw’ film can be seen at the Phoenix Theatre in Blyth on 29th January at 7pm and at the Forum Cinema in Hexham on 4th February at 6pm. More details about the project can be found on Rosie and Chris’s Crackin Toast Facebook page.

Access information

All visitors to Woodhorn will find a visit rewarding with almost all of the buildings open to the public fully accessible: only one or two places in the old colliery buildings are a little more challenging.

Road directions

Woodhorn is just off the A189 Coastal Route east of Ashington, Northumberland.  

It’s only 25 minutes from Newcastle in the south and Alnwick in the north. It is also just off the C1 National and Coast & Castles cycle routes.

If you are planning to use a sat nav, take care! Woodhorn’s postcode will take you to the wrong location, so please watch out for the brown and white signs as you get close and then Woodhorn’s large, bright entrance banners.

Public transport

Public transport: Use the following link to make your way to Ashington Bus Station: http://jplanner.travelinenortheast.info/

From here you can either take a 15 minute walk or take advantage of special taxi rates offered by Ashington Taxis on 01670 813315 or 01670 817382.

If you decide to walk, here are the directions: turn right out of the bus station, and right again at the roundabout along the A197.

Go straight over the mini roundabout, and after about 600 metres go through the white gates on the left-hand side. You’ll cross a freight railway line so please take care.

Bear right and follow the path through the QEII Country Park to the Woodhorn car park.

The nearest main line railway station is Morpeth and the nearest airport is Newcastle International Airport.
