I (Jaye) have been selected by the Kent Baton to open their Sparks Fuse Festival project, One Day Works.
The Sparky Project, an offshoot of the Imagination Your Nation initiative, has several opportunities coming up as part of their commitment to develop and deliver a wide choice of creative activities to the community. The workshops will give local people the chance to experience, hands on, the art and craft involved in producing the two main character structures for the Fuse Festival Opening Parade.
Half Term Family Workshops: Thursday, May 30th and Friday, May 31st from 11am – 1pm
An Evening of Making: Parade Stuctures (over 18s) Wednesday, May 29th and Thursday, May 30th 6.30pm – 9.30pm http://sparkyprojectevening.eventbrite.co.uk/
