Silk flag design workshop

Learn how to translate illustrations into designs suitable for batik.  Help us create a design for each story that will be made into flags!

We are inviting local people and communities to identify and celebrate 100 Stories gathered in response to the different Landscape Character Areas within the Land of the Fanns area.

Favourite memories, stories or personal connections to spaces or places in the Land of the Fanns area have been captured through writing and drawing workshops and you may have written and illustrated your own story.

Now it’s time to turn those stories in to designs for silk flags. Come and join an informal and friendly design session with Kinetika artists. Kinetika is a Purfleet based arts organisation and we are working with Land of the Fanns to deliver a Community Mapping project.

What next?

In March and April 2020 there will be creative workshops in film-making and participants will turn the drawings in to 100 silk flags using Kinetika’s batik process. The flags and the sharing of stories will form part of the celebratory Walking Arts Festival planned for May/June 2020.
