Local people asked to help design artwork for new hospital in Altrincham

stella corrall

Local people are being invited to get involved in artwork that is being designed for the new hospital currently being built in Altrincham.

Hospital bosses have asked arts charity Lime to create pieces of artwork specifically for the new Altrincham Hospital and artist Stella Corrall wants to work with the local community to help her develop her designs.

Stella will create a piece of artwork for the main waiting area, as well as designs for three glass panels in the new hospital which is due to open in spring next year.

A number of sessions have been organised to give people an opportunity to meet Stella, discuss the overall theme of the artwork and contribute their ideas.  There will also be a chance to get involved in some fun, hands-on activities.  The aim of the sessions is to get a local flavour and feel that will help to inspire the designs for the new artwork.

The sessions are being held in Stamford Ward in the current Altrincham Hospital on Market Street on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 26th November   2.00 pm - 4.00 pm
  • Tuesday 2nd December          10.00 am - 12 noon
  • Saturday 6th December          10.00 am - 12 noon
  • Thursday 11th December       5.00 pm - 7.00 pm

altrinchamYou can come for the whole session or drop in at any time.  You don't have to be particularly arty yourself but you

may have an idea or ideas of what you'd like to see in the new hospital.  All ideas are welcome.

Stella creates artworks using specifically designed, flexible translucent plastics. Each design begins with creating the material itself: its inherent colour, pattern and form. This tactile material is then manipulated and developed into decorative site-specific art installations.  She has extensive experience of devising and delivering innovative hands-on activities that enable themes and relationships to develop.

She said: "My aim is to intrigue, delight and engage people of all ages.  By working with the community and client my work develops naturally in response to the environment, creating artwork with welcoming warmth and reassurance."

Stella has created artwork for a number of local health settings including Forum Health in Wythenshawe and the Primary Care Centre in Ashton under Lyne.
