We hope you have enjoyed

this small section of our art.

We now move to introduce you

to Nick Turk, Centre below.

Nick is a member of of another

Jigsaw Group but he has

allowed his work to be displayed

by us at the museum. Nick likes to do Cross-Stitch.


All projects Jigsaw Members participate in at the

National Waterways Museum Gloucester Docks

have the collective name.

'WATER BORN'

A project can be Museum inspired. Jigsaw Member  Inspired.

Or

A collaberation of both. A collaberation with organisations who join us.

Jigsaw has brought in and shown

genuine objects from WW2 at our table,

similar to that used by Bristish Forces at 'Dunkirk'. See images Left & Right.

We have also began gathering more research material for an art project related to same.

Said research material we will have available to

view at our table in the museum soon.

See original issues of 'War Illustrated' below.


We hope you have found all of interest so far.

We began with art, so we will end with art this time round.

With this in mind we will introduce you to

Dave & Brian.

Dave is a long term member of Jigsaw who attends the Museum each week. Brian is a patron of the Museum who we have met while in situe.

Both like art. But have very different styles.

Dave's work can be seen Left & Right, while

Brian's can be seen below.

Since Brian provided his work above

we have had the sad news from Museum Staff on Saturday 23rd February 2019 that he has passed away. Brian was a pleasure to know and we will retain his

photograph  and work

as a permanent tribute to him on this page.

Brian was 85 years old.

We will have more images to add to our Journey here soon.

Our aim is to support people with

Physical health issues / Mental Health issues / Learning Difficulties

To do more in our Gloucester Community.

We would like more people effected by above to join in our activities at the museum.

If you would like to join us at the National Waterways Museum Gloucester Docks.
