In Memoriam flag display and workshop in the new chapel garden at Warstone Lane Cemetery

May 16 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Free

The Jewellery Quarter Project Team  are putting up an In Memoriam flag display in the new chapel garden at Warstone Lane Cemetery, with a chance to take part by bringing a flag you have made at home (instructions available here), making a flag on site (limited spaces due to social distancing), contribute the name of a loved one to the display or view the artwork. We’ll also be giving a sneak preview of our JQ Poppy Project community tapestry so far, which is currently being created by Woolly Mammoth Stitch Works using over 300 poppies stitched by school children and volunteers.

If you would like to come down to bring a flag, add a name or view the flags there’s no need to book – the event takes place outside and we have plenty of space for social distancing. However if you would like to make a flag on the day, please book a slot using out eventbrite link to make sure there is space and materials available for you. If you would like to take part but cannot get to the cemetery on the 16th May and don’t have your own supplies at home, please email josie.wall@jqdt.org by Friday 7th May – they have a small number of flag making kits which can be posted to you for uploading to the online gallery.
