Restoring Paradise – Textile Banner Project EDEN 2020 – 21

NEWSFLASH: *Extended deadline* for Textile banner project- due to the increased Covid restrictions it is difficult for groups to communicate and commit to projects.  We want to give everyone time to think and respond so please do register your interest with ( Liz’s email below) this will NOT be a commitment but be followed by an invitation to a choice of Zoom meetings in the third week of January when you can decide. After that date, if you are able to make a commitment we will send you the fabric and ask that the banners be completed by July 2021 with a view to being part of an arts trail in September 2021.

A series of banners portraying a message of hope for our world to stimulate thought and discussion

  • What is beauty?
  • Who cares and why?
  • How can destruction lead to hope?
  • Have you got a vision of how the world can be restored?

Would you like to convey a positive message on an eye-catching banner,- dimension 5′ x 3′?  This project is open to individuals or groups of all ages and experience.  The plan is to exhibit the banners as a collection, then individually in an arts trail as part of the Christian Arts Festival 2021.

Contact Liz Robertson, Textile Project Leader, for further information

Please register an interest with Liz asap so we can be sure to supply you with the backing material you will need.

EDEN  Banner Project ~ Restoring Paradise ~ beauty  care  destruction  restoration

We are delighted that you are interested in this exciting banner project for the Christian Arts Festival 2021.

The aim is to produce a textile banner which considers the theme of the festival, above.  You may work on your own or with a group.

We encourage you to think about each word of the theme and decide what you would like to ‘say’ in your banner.

This is not a competition!  All banners will be displayed.  But you do need to register to be part of the project.

There will be a ‘cut-off’ date by which your banner must be submitted.  We would also like a short statement about the meaning of your
banner and who was involved in making it.

You will be sent the base fabric for the front of your banner and instructions as to how to prepare it for use once you’ve registered.

You will need to provide all other materials, which may be recycled or readily available.

All banners will be exhibited in public locations during the Christian Arts Festival 2021.  They will form an arts trail.

You will have your banner back after the festival.

This project is open to all age groups.  You do not need an advanced level of art or textile experience to take part.
