I worked with Katie Utting this summer to design Mega Bunting. The bunting will be created with local Great Yarmouth groups including Herring House Trust and 4 local Great Yarmouth schools. The decorations were made for installation at SeaChange Arts‘ Out There Festival. Look out for the dazzling decorations during the festival weekend from 16th to 17th September. Thanks to Arts Council England for supporting the project.
As part of the BIG Balloon project, I also worked with artist Matthew Harrison and SeaChange Arts this summer to create special decorations for Out There Festival in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. We worked with 10 community groups and around 100 local people, celebrating 10 years of Out There with 10 hot air balloons. The designs feature Great Yarmouth history and iconic landmarks. Local groups engaging with the project include Nelson Museum volunteers and Great Yarmouth and Gorleston Young Carers (GYGYC).
I worked with local families at Drill House/SeaChange Arts in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk to create rag bunting from scraps of recycled fabric. Sessions at the Open Day on 4th June and the Latin Street Party on 15th July. The strings of colourful textile decorations are to be displayed around Out There Festival in September 2017.
