Transported is working in partnership with Boston Borough Council to bring Family Fun Fridays, free arts activities, to Boston Marketplace in 2015

Wriggling their way in and out of trouble, the Bookworms will be popping up to bring stories to life!

With a rickety handcart library and some novel ideas, surprises leap off the page wherever they roam. Join our funny guides as they worm their way into twisty and fantastic adventures through imaginative worlds.

Suitable for all (children must be accompanied by an adult).

Artist Julie Willoughby of Zoomorphia will be also in the marketplace hosting a drop in workshop, using textile techniques to create a large community wall hanging themed on local landscapes.  We will be using easy textile techniques for beginners like rag rugging, plaiting, tassles, knotting and big stitches, along with more skilled techniques like mega embroidery, suffolk puffs and hooking. If you have any old (washed, please) T shirts, bring them along to be incorporated into the wall hanging for posterity!

We will need your help, the challenge is to create a beautiful “hedge” themed wall hanging using scraps of fabric, recycled and donated material, old buttons and broken jewellery. No experience is needed, but if you have some skills they would be much appreciated. So if you can’t sew a stitch or are a textile expert, join us for “Material Mayhem”.
