1st April 2017

Workshop - Flood Tapestry

Quaker Tapestry are hosting a community workshop to create a Flood Tapestry.

Community Workshop on Saturday 1st April 2017 (2pm – 4pm) here at Quaker Tapestry Museum, Stramongate, Kendal, LA9 4BH. All welcome.

All workshop participants will be able to see the exhibition free of charge, to inspire their work towards the Flood Tapestry Panel. 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, is a community 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 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 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. 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 2pm on the afternoon 1st April. We’d love to see you.

If you cant make it on 1st April but would like to be involved we will be holding another workshop on Wednesday 19th April at Sandylands.
