The National Trust, Trelissick engaged in a series of creative programming and interpretation to improve the visitor experience resulting in an increase in visitor numbers.
Jane Pugh (former) Creative Programme Manager, at Trelissick explains the thinking behind this commission:
Christmas is a special time of year and, for some people, visiting their favourite National Trust property becomes part of their tradition so, it’s essential to offer an experience that is both different and recognisable.Jane Pugh
For seven Christmas trees, Alessandra created special fairies and Christmas decorations that told the life-stories of different people who’d lived at Trelissick.
They were exquisite!
Alessandra interprets stories, themes, history, culture, communities using visual and creative arts, talent, an enquiring mind and lots of empathy.
She brings life to life!
