This is an invitation to join a community project being held throughout the parish of St Mary Bourne.
Corona Virus has had such a huge impact on the normal way of life of the villages within the parish of St Mary Bourne, that it was felt that a community project would not only help to promote a sense of unity, but also prove in a small way, as a record of how we reacted to it.
What is it all about?
Inion Arts (based in Binley) are giving away free Acrylic Resin Flower Kits (worth £15) to 40 households within the parish. These kits contain everything you need to make a minimum of 40 basic flowers in coloured resin. Full instructions are supplied, but click here for more information.
What do I do?
Make flowers! This is suitable for all ages – in essence you twist wire and dip the finished shape in liquid resin to make a flower petal, which you then join together to make a flower.
Help is always only a phone call or a Zoom meeting away! At the Inion Arts workshops we have had people attend whose ages range from 5 – 85!
As you make flowers, we ask that you upload photos of them or send photos to be uploaded on the St Mary Bourne Hub Facebook page for all those taking part in the project to see and/or comment upon.
How do I join?
As we have only 40 free kits available we have asked people to join that we think would enjoy and benefit from taking part in such a project, so could you please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to take part so we can arrange delivery of the kit or if you decide not to, offer your place to another.
Please either email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let us know if you want to take part.
There is a competition which offers prizes in the following categories:
Each person who has access to a kit can enter a photograph of one single flower and/or a small posy of flowers which they have made MOSTLY by themselves (support may be needed in some instances) which will be judged at the end of August and prizes awarded for the best in each category. Images of all the entries will be posted on the website.
This project has been funded in part by the Tesco Bags of Help scheme, managed by Groundwork.
