Decoupage at the Water Palace Exhibition

At the Water Palace Exhibition in Birmingham, UK, World of Water used decoupage displays designed and made by architect Timothy Griffiths. Each display was back-lit to in balance with the brightness of the computer screens sponsored by I.B.M.

A photo record of five, out of the six decoupage, remains on the World of Water archive. The originals were lost.

The earliest decoupage in the WoW Collections (below) dates from circa 1923 and was made by Charles Wentworth Elam (1890 – 1966) for his daughter, Joyce Latham Elam, who later became co-founder of the World of Water charity.

World of Water’s move from blogs, leaflets, books and live performance, to podcasts and movies.

We are converting a building at our Field Centre into a small animation/ film studio and Helen’s painting a green screen as I type this in readiness for our first Zoom meeting with Ffilm Cymru on 29th July 2020.

Through sharing stories, globally, our campaign will add our support to all those working to clean up the global water habitat for the sustainable future needed by every living creature.

We have dozens of animated shorts and documentaries to make. Each will need individual input and team strength. To help in one of our charity’s films, please get in touch with us at the World of Water Field Centre and have your say.
