In conjunction with a number of local artists we will be holding joint workshops for our members to produce large banners and crowns to be displayed in Rowlands Road, ready to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June.
We are also looking for knitters to help knit decorations as part of our Queen’s Jubilee Platinum Community Art Project. We will supply the wool and simple patterns, so you can start knitting at your leisure. There’s also a dedicated Knit and Natter session planned. See below for details.
Here’s the first of the workshops; we hope to have you along to help create something wonderful!
After School Art Workshop with Artful Pottery café
Tuesday 5th April, 4-6pm
This will be a fun session with a Pop Art theme, using fabric paints and felt to decorate the large banners.
All day workshops with Inclusive Arts
Friday 22nd and Friday 29th April
Come along and help make banners and crowns in either the morning or afternoon sessions or stay for the whole day – whatever suits you! Let us know if you will need assistance with transport.
Knit and Natter
Monday 9th May, 2-3.30pm
Join us for a special Knit and Natter afternoon when we will be joined by community knitters from Storm, who are also based close by in Rowlands Road. If you are interested in helping either at home or coming along to the Knit and Natter please contact Roz on the usual office number or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Dates for other Jubilee Art workshops are still to be finalised so look out for more details in forthcoming newsletters and here on the website. To sign up for our newsletters, please click here.
