Break out the bunting! Free workshop

Join us for a special free bunting making workshop at Fabrica gallery, as part of two heritage projects; The Boys on the Plaque and The Orange Lilies- Brighton and Hove in the Somme, which both commemorate Brighton & Hove’s soldiers who fought in WWI. This takes place on Tuesday 23rd August 2-5pm.
As part of September’s Heritage Open Days 2016, we will be hosting a special event called ‘Keep the Home Fires Burning’ to share the findings of our intrepid volunteer researchers, who have been exploring the lives and stories of 96 local soldiers who fought and died in the war. This will be a relaxed and social event, and we’d love to decorate the church with beautiful, locally-crafted bunting!
So come along for a free afternoon to learn bunting making skills and have a bit of a natter with some creative crafting! Hosted by Nicola Benge from Strike A Light, materials will be provided but you are also welcome to bring something along to contribute.
Plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits provided!
Book your free spot today and drop in to join in the fun: http://buntingfabrica.eventbrite.com

Free workshop with The Ragroof Players


Free workshop – Tomorrow Tuesday 17th March

The Ragroof Players, a fantastic, creative and inspiring group of artists (who Strike a Light has had the pleasure of working with before), are offering free bunting making and reminiscence activities tomorrow in Brighton at the Martlets. The session is for people with lift Ilimiting conditions and carers. The group will spend an hour or so sharing life stories then make some bunting, have tea and cake.

Plus free hand massage for anyone who wants one! Wish I could come too….

The Ragroof Players are delighted to announce a collaboration with The Martlets Hospice in Brighton which will include specially themed workshops in a number of arts disciplines and a culminating tea dance in April.

The workshops are for people with life-limiting conditions including: palliative cancer, heart failure, neurological conditions, such as motor-neuron disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, respiratory conditions, and dementia.

Using fabrics, clothing remnants, scraps, buttons, and ribbons that evoke fond memories of past times – some contributed by the workshop participants themselves – the Ragroof Players will work with participants to create beautiful garlands of Memory Bunting, which will ultimately be used to decorate the hall at the Ragroof Tea Dance at the culmination of the project. Everyone welcome – no sewing skills needed!
