FREE event – Kendal Flood Tapestry – Needle Felting and Stitching
2nd September 2017
FREE Family Friendly Community Workshop to create a Flood Tapestry.
Flood Tapestry Community Workshop on Saturday 2nd September 2017 (1pm – 4pm) at Quaker Tapestry Museum, Friends Meeting House, Stramongate, Kendal. All Welcome.
This is a FREE family friendly event (all children to be accompanied by a parent or guardian). 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.
This will be an informal and fun workshop suitable for all the family, run by textile artists Sue Tyldesley and Donna Campbell. We will using needle felting and stitch to add textural elements to the tapestry, they are easy and fun skills to pick up for both young and old so please come along. It will be an uplifting, hopeful and rewarding experience for all.
