Canopy is the new project from Eden Arts which will result in an exhibition in trees & woodland across the Eden district in Cumbria in spring/summer 2013.
THE WOOLLEN WOODS: As part of the project they hope to transform the woodland of National Trust property Acorn Bank with thousands of woollen artworks (in support of the Campaign for Wool).
People are being encouraged to make and submit woodland themed woollen artworks for the exhibition and there has been some fabulous artworks submitted so far but they still need many more.
Eden Arts are appealing to artists, craftspeople, school and groups to contribute to the exhibition – anyone can join in!
The exhibition should get a lot of media and press coverage, which will in turn raise the awareness of the Campaign for Wool and the creators of the artworks.
Anyone who submits artwork by end March will be added to the exhibition ‘Roll of Honour’. A photo of the artwork(s) will be put on their Facebook pages, along with a link to your website if you have one.
They will still accept and display artworks after exhibition opens on 6th April.
The are lots of artwork ideas on Eden Arts Woollen Woods Pinterest page and FREE patterns and a submission form on the project website at www.canopyart.co.uk.
This project follows on from our 2011/12 ‘Join the FLOCK’ wool project – www.jointheflock.co.uk
