Quartz Community Lent Project for 2023

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”

Rom 12v2. NASV

We are making a willow and paper sculpture over the weeks of Lent which is on the theme of Transformation. The sculpture will start as a cocoon and represents the process of personal transformation that we all go through as we approach Easter. 

Is there anything we want to let go of? 

Is there anything we want to take on in the coming weeks?

Everyone will have an opportunity to contribute to the cocoon by writing words on paper which can be added to the structure. The cocoon will develop throughout the six weeks of Lent in surprising ways.

These words will symbolise our commitment to moving forward in our lives – and the sculpture will change and develop as we approach Easter!

No special art skills are required – we would like as many folk as possible to take part…thank you for your contributions.

Watch how the sculpture develops throughout Lent, read about the thoughts behind it on the blog posts…
