Saturday 31 July & Sunday 1 August @ 10am to 4pm (drop in any time)

At The Venue in Navenby

Free, but under 11’s must be accompanied

Refreshments available

Our artist in residence, Nicki Jarvis, has been awarded funding from Arts Council England to work with Cliff Carnival this summer. The project: Take Part and Make Your Mark TOGETHER will create opportunities for local people to contribute to permanent artworks that reflect on experiences over the past year and on the places and people who have been important.

Everyone is welcome to drop in at The Venue over the weekend and take part.

On the Saturday we will be working on six festival flags, using words and images that have been provided through outreach during the last few months. We will be drawing templates, cutting fabric and pinning/roughly hand-stitching this to a backing fabric. Volunteers will then kindly machine stitch our work after the workshop. The flags will be launched at a Cliff Carnival event in September then be available for Cliff villages to use for community celebrations.

On the Sunday we will be making decorative clay tiles inspired by the buildings, history and people of Navenby. Nicki will take these away to be glazed and fired, and they will then be mounted as a large panel and displayed in the community. Participants are also welcome to make a tile to keep.
