The Cathedral Market Nativity, Winchester
In 2019, as part of the Mission work for the Christmas Market, this was a community project with local schools. The children designed nativity characters on A4 paper, which Sophie then transferred to moisture resistant MDF and worked with a group of volunteers to paint the characters in the colours chosen by the children. The nativity stable is situated at the head of the Craft section of the market, and the Nativity is used each year. It proved extremely popular with visitors, many of whom took photographs to use as their own Christmas card.
