The toilet block in Hunstanton’s Heritage Gardens are now even more colourful.

Local artist Kate Dunbar started a project of laying painted ceramic tiles at the toilet block in the gardens last year.

The tiles are hand-painted by members of the public during a series of workshops held by the artist.

Participants are shown how to paint the tiles and are then invited to create their own designs.

There are now four frames full of painted ceramic tiles and there are still four more to go.

Cllr Elizabeth Nockolds, Deputy Leader and portfolio holder for culture, heritage and health, said: “The tile-painting workshops last year were incredibly popular, with lots of people coming along, and some really wonderful art was produced.

“It’s great to see this project moving to its next stage.

“If you’d like your artwork to be seen by visitors to the gardens for years to come, why not join us at one of the next workshops in August.”

Anyone who missed the workshops last year still has a chance to be involved in the project.

There will be more workshops in August on 3, 4, 10, 11, 24 and 25, between 10.30am and 4pm.

They are free to attend, full details can be found on west-norfolk.gov.uk/hunstantonevents

The workshops are part of an extensive events programme funded by the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk and the National Lottery Heritage Fund, as part of the Hunstanton Heritage Gardens regeneration project.
