Kendal Flood Tapestry Workshop

FREE Kendal Flood Tapestry Workshop, a creative community project.

Flood Tapestry Community Workshop on Saturday 17th February 2018 (1pm – 4pm) at Quaker Tapestry Museum, Friends Meeting House, Stramongate, Kendal. All Welcome.

This is a FREE event. All art materials and tea/coffee and biscuits will be provided.

The ‘Kendal Flood Tapestry’ project, to create a wall hanging and stitched story of the Kendal Floods and the resilience of the community, is a project to record the events that occurred when Storm Desmond hit Kendal in December 2015 and much of the town was flooded.

Anyone can contribute to the community project regardless of their crafting or artistic ability as the stories people have to tell are just as valuable to this project. We aim to audio record recollections of the strength of our community in the aftermath of the flood so please come along if you have a story to share.

These sessions will be bringing together the design and creations, shaping what will be the final tapestry panel. We are certain you will have fun. It will be an uplifting, hopeful and rewarding experience for all.

It would be good to know who is coming along so do let us know. Do feel free to just turn up at 1pm on 17th February if you fancy. We’d love to see you.

If you cant make the 17th February but would like to be involved please look at our next FREE workshop. Alternatively please contact bridget@quaker-tapestry.co.uk or by phoning 01539 722975 if you wish to discuss the project further or register your interest.
