I have had a busy few weeks getting ready for a large Commission (supported by LeftCoast Blackpool) that involves us curating a space at the next Tram Sunday in Fleetwood. I have two vintage trams and through various creative ways I will be making these an immersive experience for all who goes on board the static spaces.
One tram will be a terrarium and filled with live trees and foliage as well as lots of tiny knitted insects and flowers. I am looking for anyone and everyone to be involved and to contribute as much or as little to the project as possible.
Interested? Here are the details…
“Squirrel & Tiffin have been commissioned by LeftCoast Blackpool to engage people with the arts at the next Tram Sunday Festival on 20th July. We want to include as many local people as possible to make this happen. We are turning a vinatge tram into an art installation terrarium using real life trees and knitted insects to create a Secret Garden environment. We are looking for small knitted insects such as bees, snails, butterflies as well as leaves, petals and flowers to make the Secret Garden area visually appealing to all audiences. Materials and templates will be available at the knitting club at Palatine Road Library every Tuesday between 2-4pm until the 8th July. There will also be additional sessions at Central Library on the first Monday of the month between 3-4.30pm starting in June. If you are unable to get to the knitting club, templates and some wool are available from reception of Palatine library. Once we have curated the space on the tram we invite everyone to come and experience their work in action! We will be located at Pharos Street in Fleetwood and the Secret Garden will be open from 10am until 5pm on Sunday 20th July. If you would like any more information or to contribute then please contact Chief Squirrel Linzi on email@example.com or pop into Palatine Library and speak to Helen Bunn.”
