FREE event – Kendal Flood Tapestry Workshop – Design and Create.
7th October 2017
FREE Family Friendly Community Workshop to create a Flood Tapestry.
Flood Tapestry Community Workshop on Saturday 7th October 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 artist Donna Campbell. We will be bringing together the design and creations, shaping what will be the final tapestry panel. Its never too late to join us though, even if this is your first workshop 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 but do feel free to just turn up at 1pm on 7th October. We’d love to see you.
If you cant make it on 7th October but would like to be involved please look at our other FREE workshop happening. Alternatively please contact [email protected] or by phoning 01539 722975 if you wish to discuss the project further or register your interest.
