Banner-making Workshop

As part of the events organised to accompany ‘Ley Lines – Kate Scardifield’, Fife Contemporary is running a banner-making workshop for children aged 8 and over.

When researching museum objects before she began to make work for  ‘Ley Lines’, Kate looked at examples of banners made for various trades’ organisations in Scotland.  In the A to Z exhibition at St Andrews Museum, for example, there is a very fine banner which was made for the Order of Free Gardeners. As a result of this research, Kate made banners for the exhibition which she dyed using plants native to Australia.

In this workshop, Fife-based textile artist Claire Heminsley will help participants create a single, large ‘friendship’ banner on a Scotland-Australia theme. There will be no dyeing of fabric (!) but you will create shapes to stick/glue to the main banner, and make a decorative wall piece which we will attach to the activity space wall for the duration of Kate’s exhibition.  If you have time, you will also be able to make mini flags to take home.

Date – Thursday 15 February 2018, 11am-1pm
Venue – activity space, 1st floor of St Andrews Museum
Age – participants must be aged 8 years or over
Class size – limited to a maximum of 12 participants
