Event description

Description

This September, Erith Pier will be transformed into a piece of art, and we want you to help us create it!

Join artist Julia Snowdin to design and decorate a series of storytelling sails that explore the town’s history as pleasure resort and industrial centre, as well as your own experiences of Erith and the river. On the day, participants will talk and discuss their ideas and stories before working these up into a series of patterns and shapes. These shapes will then be drawn onto the sails, and outlines created by punching holes in the fabric.

The sails will be suspended on the pier to create new spaces for the community to relax and play within. The patterns will create light spots on the pier during the day and evening. At night, the sails will be lit with different hues of colour creating new ‘rooms’ in which the community can picnic and unwind.

No experience necessary, this workshop is open to all age groups and abilities.
