Event details

Sat 4 August 2018 • 3:00pm – 5:00pm

Join our Guerrilla Army of public artists to make your mark on Wembley Park. Get creative on a giant scale and make your own festival flag with internationally renowned carnival artist Helen Davenport. We will lead you through design, painting and printing techniques to create your fabric masterpiece in this two hour workshop.

All items made during the workshops will be displayed across Wembley Park in September 2018 as part of a large scale public art project. Get to grips with familiar hand tools and learn simple but beautiful techniques to use again and again in your future creative endeavours. No previous experience or skills are required and all materials will be provided on the day, just book a place and everything will be sorted for you.
