Recent Cass MA By Project Alumna Jenni Burrows has secured Arts Council funding through the Creative People and Creative Places initiative.

Over a series of workshops a group will make ten large sculptural hand-made felt poppies with embroidered quotes from visiting soldiers (approx two metres in diameter) to mark the anniversary of WW1.

The workshops are non-selective. One group of ten (over 65’s) and one group of ten (11-18 years) will skill share; the elders will teach embroidery to the teenagers, the teenagers will teach felt making to the elders.

Each poppy will represent a campaign since WW1. The poppies will be installed in cathedrals, churches, museums, council offices and businesses in the Medway area during 2014.

Talking about the project , Jenni said, “My aim is for the community to integrate skills and develop an understanding of different generations through creative workshops, celebrating the community of rural Medway in outlying villages.”

The Workshops will run between March and July 2014 in Hoo Library near Rochester Kent.
