PATINA stands for Parents And Teachers In the Arts and is a registered charity that promotes the arts in Lewes and surrounding areas.
PATINA puts on an annual Parade of over 500 Year 6 school children, to mark the transition from Primary to Secondary School. There is a different theme each year and local Artists work closely with the children in designing and making of costumes and structures. It is an intergenerational project which has reached thousands of people over the years.
2017 marked my 10th year of working on the project.
