The film of For the Fallen, the development of the banners, the dancing and the finale…
The workshop, at Westbury Arts Centre, is suitable for all levels of ability, from beginners interested in learning textile skills, to those with advanced textiles skills.
The workshop will be 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. The Banners made 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.
