Should I stay or should I go?
Introducing the 'Take Flight' creative project at Fornighty Hall.
Wednesday 19th of April 2023 from 7.30pm – 9pm.
‘Take Flight’ is a new project for the residents of East Nairnshire, celebrating the migratory birds which temporarily call East Nairnshire home each year by creating beautiful large scale silk banners for the community hall at Fornighty. Stephen Wiseman from Nature for Health will introduce the project with an illustrated presentation, looking at five birds in particular – the Chiffchaff, Osprey, Cuckoo, the Pink Footed Goose and the Waxwing. All are welcome and the talk is free.
As part of this event, artist Amy Neville from Naturally Useful will give a demonstration of some of the simple techniques involved in making the naturally dyed silk banners. .
The banners will form part of the Nairn Book and Arts Festival migration themed parade 'On the Wing' in September before being put on display in Fornighty Hall
You are warmly invited to come along to learn about these interesting and beautiful birds and the banner making project, which we very much hope you will be interested in joining.
Participatory workshops will be taking place between 26th of May and 11th June.
