Community craft project to celebrate pier’s anniversary
PUBLISHED: 10:00 03 December 2019
Craft enthusiasts have been adding their pictures to a giant piece of fabric to mark the Clevedon Pier’s 150th anniversary.
The pier is inviting people to take part in the craft project - A Snapshot in Stitches - which celebrates the rich history of the landmark and the people who have supported it.
The fabric base is being filled with images created by the community, from simple designs to more complex stitches including appliqué, embellishments and wool embroidery.
The project represents in stitches the fabric of people who have supported the pier throughout its history and marks a bright and diverse future.
People have been taking part in workshops at the pier to work on the colourful creation.
The final piece will be displayed in an celebration exhibition, before being added to the archive. To find out more, email email@example.com
