Sue’s project is called The Pale Boy Storyboard, which uses a free-standing board in the culture hub to tell a story.

Dorothy’s nostalgic pieces concentrate on landscapes and local scenes from the past, with images of mining and everyday life in Wigan rendered in a variety of mediums.

The cabinet space is occupied by Hazel’s work which mainly draws on her love of flowers and landscapes.
