  • Etwall Well dressings 2002 - Photographs and History
    of nails a little like a bed of nails Into this frame is spread clay about 25mm 1 thick The clay is puddled a process whereby the well dressers walk over the clay in much the same way as grapes used to be pressed This has the effect of softening the clay and removes stones grit twigs A little salt is added to the clay to assist with its water retention Then the image is marked out with seeds small stones or coffee beans in much the same way a child s colouring book looks Then the coloured images are filled in with petals Hydranger are good for blue skies moss for greens and bark for trees and buildings No self respecting well dresser uses any paint whatsoever It will take a proficient well dresser about seven hours to attach all the petals They are laid like tiles so that any rain will run over the petals and off the bottom of the picture There is no definitive explanation as to why they were started It is thought that they originated in pagan rituals or sacrifices to water gods as a thanks for past supplies and a request for continuing future deliveries The scarifies are thought to have been replaced by the colourful decoration as a tribute to the gods It is known that the Romans made similar offering to their gods and one theory says that they probably brought this custom to Derbyshire Unfortunately no similar custom exists in modern Italy So the most favoured theory has the custom originating before the Romans and that is was a Celtic custom that managed to survive the successive invasions of Romans Saxons Danes and Normans What is more certain is that the early Christian Church absorbed the pagan rite into it
