Lytham Flag Festival & Yarn Bombing 2016

Art Circle Lytham and Art Circle St Annes will be taking part.
More details can be found on Lytham Arts Festival website - below gives you an idea of what's happening.  

"The festival aims to bring together local schools, community groups, businesses and residents to celebrate all that is great about Lytham. It is an opportunity for you to promote yourselves by creating a bright and bold flag that will be flown in Lytham throughout the festival 13th - 27th February and then will be yours to keep for future events.

We are able to provide you with a 3 x 2 ft plain coloured flag and some extra material  for you to create your own special design. We will put up and take down your flag so there is no cost to you.

There is a Flag Festival Launch presentation planned for this Saturday 28th November at Park View Eco Pod at 2pm. Here we will discuss flag making methods and you can sign up for free workshops on printing with natural materials and sewing techniques that will be held in January 2016.

Printing using natural materials
Saturday 16th January 10am -12 and 2pm -4pm

Sewing and Stitching
Sunday 17th January 10am - 12 and 2pm - 4pm

During the festival we are also planning a Yarn Bombing art installation and we are asking for contributions of knitting or crochet work to help with the project. Knitted squares, animals and especially knitted hearts (the festival falls during valentines) would be most appreciated (add a name tag with your name so we can thank you and mention you on Twitter and Facebook) Knitting contributions can be dropped off at Lytham Library."
