Event details

Sun 26 August 2018 • 2:00pm – 5:00pm

Join our Guerrilla Army of public artists to make your mark on Wembley Park. Get creative on a giant scale with flag making and illustration sessions led by acclaimed artists Helen Davenport and Emma Barnie. We will lead you through design, painting, printing and illustration techniques to create your masterpiece.

Your flags will be displayed across Wembley Park in September 2018 as part of a large scale public art project. You will leave with your beautiful designs and illustrations from the session as well as a heap of new skills and ideas for the future.

No previous experience or skills are required and all materials will be provided on the day. You can turn up unreserved on the day, or guarantee your place by booking your free place below.
