Bloomin’ Hull is the second edition of #wemadethis flower garlands. If you fancy getting your craft on and helping them cover the whole of Hull in the things, have a look at the brief below, or look up the Craft Project Hull Facebook group to find out more.
Bloomin’ Hull – 28 March – 18 April
For this year’s Spring project, they’re revisiting the flower garlands. Like last year, the idea is to cover Hull in the them – from fences to railings to lamp posts, from ones a mile long to wrap around your school’s fence to dinky little ones in your front garden or even your front window; so long as they’re visible to the public, it’s all good. (Just remember to get permission from whoever’s fence, railing etc. you are using.)
As ever, you can make them as an individual or a group, out of whichever (weather proof) material and in any colour(s) you like.
- Garlands are to go up on Saturday 28th March (or nearest date before you can manage).
- Garlands are to be taken down on Sunday 19th April (or nearest date after you can manage).
- In a slight change from last year’s project, they will be producing a Flower Trail Map – a printed version as well as a downloadable PDF on the We Made This Hull website. That’s also why it’s important that the garlands are at least up for the above period, to avoid visitor disappointment. In order to be able to print and distribute the map in time for the official start date, the deadline for registering your participation is Friday 13th March.
If you’d like to do a garland (or several), please leave a comment here stating organisation or area you’re representing, and roughly where your garlands are going to be. Exact location to be confirmed by 13th March.
If you’re new to this group they’ll try and match you up with an existing group (or indeed try and form a new group if a new area emerges).
Garlands don’t strictly have to be outdoors, but do need to be in a location that is publicly accessible, free of charge.
Each (set of) garland(s) will be accompanied by a poster listing the names of the makers. These are produced centrally, and the group will be in touch re. details nearer the time.
So, in summary:
Friday 13th March: deadline registering participation
Saturday 28th March: garlands up
Sunday 19th April: garlands down
