Lockdown Banner

The Derwenthorpe Lockdown Wall Hanging, was unveiled at the Derwenthorpe Arts Festival. It was created by Derwenthorpe crafters during lockdown. Many hours of work went into the banner, which depicts many aspects of Derwenthorpe during lockdown, through the four seasons of 2020: from Zoom craft group meetings, to Christmas decorations, spring flowers and summer cygnets. More information about the Craft Group can be found on their page: https://derwenthorpe.co.uk/lotson/craft-group/

Lockdown at Derwenthorpe – craft project

Given the 3rd Lockdown the craft group are planning a small scale collective textile project: “Lockdown at Derwenthorpe”. This is likely to be a smallish scale wall hanging.

Residents are invited to make a six inch square with words or image(s) that represent lockdown at Derwenthorpe to them, made with fabric sewn, hand stitched, knitted, appliquéd or stuck on to plain material. Some of the craft group will do appliqued letters, and those of us with quilting skills will put together the completed squares and letters into a hanging, with the direction of those artistically skilled in layout and colour combinations. Packs containing a background material square and a selection of material scraps, are available for those who haven’t suitable stuff in their stash.  

If you would like to get involved in this project (please indicate if you would like either a pack of materials or guidelines) or to the join the Craft Group, please contact us by email via neighbours@derwenthorpe.co.uk.
