WW1 MILTON KEYNES BANNER PROJECT at Westbury Arts
Saturday 18th October & Saturday 8th November.
Westbury Arts Centre are holding banner making workshops for those passionate about all things textile!! The workshop is suitable for all levels of ability, from beginners interested in learning textile skills, to those with advanced textiles skills.
Run by Vinny Stapley, a textile artist and teacher, who plans to work with a wide range of groups within the Milton Keynes community to create hundreds of Banners to commemorate those people who served in The Great War and will form part of a procession of Remembrance and a Dance Performance in Campbell Park in July 2015.
Vinny will come in with some materials, but it would also contribute to the project as a whole, if participants were able to bring in old WW1 photos or other mementos of family members to discuss and maybe integrate copies of these into their own banners. It would be great if you could contribute some fabrics or old clothes in red, grey, white, black and cream colours to upcycle in the banners, but not essential.
The workshop is also suitable for those trying to build a portfolio demonstrating a range of techniques for entry to art college, or those that want to learn to stitch for pleasure.
