An invitation!

Working alongside two professional artists and WEA tutors, Roz Beeson and

Rebecca Spear, you are warmly invited to contribute in any way you wish

to creating a textile/mixed media hanging which will celebrate and tell your

personal stories about the East Midlands WEA. At the meetings (dates below)

we will pool ideas and skills and get started on creating a glorious piece of

work which will tell a story, which we can use as a touring exhibition and

which will be a lasting legacy for the region.

We are looking for artists, crafters, stitchers, creative writers, engineers,

woodworkers, historians, geologists, musicians, embroiderers, readers of

books, bloggers, Tweeters, photographers, archaeologists, cataloguers,

researchers, people with ideas, people with no ideas but a willingness to

learn and support, people with no experience of any of the above – in fact

anyone who knows anything about the WEA at all!

This is an opportunity to be creative together and to work together, to bring

our WEA community closer and at the same time grow that community.

Please join us to create a wonderful WEA community work of art!
