Crafts, dance and music combine in celebration of the golden thread linking UK and USA folk song. Workshops 4pm - 6pm; Performance 7.30pm - 10.30pm Doors at 7pm Join us to print, make and stitch with Harriet Vine (Tatty Devine), Stephen Fowler and Desdemona McCannon followed by an evening of music and performances featuring Lisa Knapp and Gerry Diver, Dan Eccles and Jake Jones, Orson Coupland and Jim Stoten, Drew Webster, and Nick White. Choose from one of the following three workshops: Desdemona McCannon: Pilgrim Badge Workshop In this workshop you will use a place that is a significant destination for you as a starting point to design and make a cloth patch or badge. Using applique and simple printmaking and embroidery techniques, you will make a fabric badge that can be attached to a bag or item of clothing. Harriet Vine: Jewellery Making Workshop Join Harriet Vine, Creative Director and Co-Founder of Tatty Devine, in a jewellery making workshop to celebrate The Golden Thread Project. Turn lyrics and imagery from your favourite songs into brooches and necklaces made from laser cut wood and leather, incorporating print and painting to make your favourite music into a wearable conversation piece. Stephen Fowler: Rubber Stamp Broadside Printing Workshop Broadside Ballads were published during the sixteenth and up to the nineteenth centuries. They were a single sheet of printed matter consisting of type and woodcut images. This popular print explored all manner of subject matter including love, religion, drinking-songs, legends, and current events of the day such as disasters, political events and signs, wonders and prodigies. During Fowler's workshop you will have the choice of a number of printed ballads to illustrate through the technique of hand carved rubber stamp print. By the end of the workshop all participants will go home with an edition of the group's broadside ballads. Promoted by EFDSS.
