Festive Community Garlands Project
This event is now finished. Please visit our Events and Activities section to find out about other events which are coming soon.
Equal Arts need your help creating a forest of festive community garlands.
This winter thy’re partnering with Seven Stories to extend their HenPals initiative for a Christmassy community project.
Inspired by the centre’s collection of The Good Little Christmas Tree by Ursula Moray Williams, they’re asking you to create your own collage tree for a forest of larger garlands that will be shared with the residents they support in care homes.
You can either create one tree using the activity guide and template from their website or create a whole garland!
Residents receiving your trees and festive greetings will take part in online creative sessions adding their own trees and decorations to the garlands ready for them to be displayed this Christmas.
