A Moveable Feast at Saltaire Inspired

We had a fantastic time a couple of weeks ago bringing A Moveable Feast to the Saltaire Inspired Art Trail. The idea was to bring a bit of carnival and a few folkloric fancies to the event.  With that in mind I invited some fantastic artists (Duncan Burnett, Lucas Stephens, Lizzy Alageswaran and Jennifer Booth) to come along and help over the three days and we worked with visitors to create pieces to wear and parade. Techniques used included wirework, sun photography, willow work cardboard construction  and lots of other things – it was a case of bringing along your imagination and playing with materials – brilliant fun!  Every so often we gathered folk together to make some noise and go for an impromptu prance around the Saltaire streets. People really threw themselves into it and the sun shone! Thanks to Saltaire Inspired for hosting us and to Rev Caroline and the United Reform Church for allowing us to take over their gardens. We’d love to take the Moveable Feast to other locations so please do get in touch if you’d like us to animate your event!
