Following the Artistic Director’s request, the Open Clasp team are continuing to blog during these strange times. Our Finance and Office Manager, Rachel Errington’s blog gives insight to those who live alone during lockdown and how they coped.


The view from my window

Trees hide communal bins

Small sounds of others living their lives – coping

I’m counting my blessings


Landscape of pain and death

Deceit, Unrest

Everything unsteady


Making things has been my comfort

No one can take it away, imprison it

Nor lock it down


Ground your feet into the earth

And breathe deep
