Welcome to the Butterfly Project
To celebrate the Emett Clock's return to intu Victoria Centre this summer, we invited children from across Nottingham to hand decorate a beautiful butterfly.
The templates for the butterflies have been taken from the butterflies which adorn the Emett Clock, and will be decorated in pastel colours with lots of sparkle and shimmer. All the beautifully decorated butterflies have now come together to create a very special hanging mobile surrounding the Emett Clock's new home.
Crafting a Legacy
As well as being able to see their butterflies hanging in the centre during June and July, children had the opportunity to have their artwork immortalised as part of the clock’s new surround. Each child who decorated a butterfly was entered into a competition to have their design recreated in a hard-wearing material that will then be included as part of the Emett Clock’s surround that we have commissioned.
