Flag and Banner making workshop


Flag and banner making workshop
Monday 6 July
10 am-4 pm, Woodland Centre, Yarner Wood, near Bovey Tracey


Join the Moor than meets the eye team for a FREE workshop with local artist Bridget Arnold to learn some of the skills and techniques needed to make fabric flags and banners.
The workshop will look at inspiration, design, materials and construction. By the end of the workshop you will have tried your hand at some of the skills and techniques involved and created a banner representing Dartmoor’s heritage which will be used across the Moor than meets the eye scheme.
As part of the workshop you will also make a pennant using all the techniques learned, to take away with you.
Andy Bailey, Moor than meets the eye Community Officer, said: Flags and banners are a great way to advertise and promote your heritage projects. Taking an arts approach can draw people in and help the whole community take part and learn about heritage through the process of creating artwork.
Moor than meets the eye are also looking for volunteers to help carry the finished banner at an event to mark the first year of the scheme on July 14 this year.
The workshop is free and all materials and equipment will be provided. Due to the popularity of these events it is essential that you book your place.  Please contact Andy on 01822 890903 or email andy@moorthanmeetstheeye.org
Moor than meets the eye is a Heritage Lottery Funded scheme which is helping people to discover the Dartmoor Story.
