2020: 'Selfies together in isolation' was a remote collaboration of artists making self-portraits, which were then discussed and shared via Zoom. The project was curated and hosted by Wayward member Gail Flockhart.

2017-2018: 'Dartmoor Visions' was a project developing work on the theme of Dartmoor, for an open call for work at RAMM.  This was developed further towards an exhibition including nine artists, held at the Museum of Dartmoor Life in Okehampton (Sept 2018). See exhibition photos.

2013-2015: Following a collaborative book-work on the theme of being undertaken in 2013, three of the participating artists progressed a project entitled The Imperfect Ideal.  During 2014-15, a number of works were developed consisting of: a series of photographic images, a set of oil paintings and a series of print works/life drawings.

Completed 2013: Seven members of Wayward collaborated in an art book project which was successfully completed in 2013. The art book, titled being was borne out of a desire to investigate the scope and limitations of drawing. 'Drawing' was interpreted by each artist exploring the boundaries of two-dimensional representation in its broadest possible terms. The result is a collection of individual artworks exploring the theme of being through print-making, photography, collage, painting and drawing

February 2011: Members of Wayward collaborated on a sound book Without Title, loosely interpreting the theme of 'being in the world'. This experimental composition was broadcast on Soundart Radio on 1st February 2011 and included contributions by Ron Andrews, Patricia Chu, Sue Coulson, Gail Flockhart, Gail Strong and Peter Messa.
