Marches Makers Live
1st, 2nd and 3rd May 2021
Exhibition of Miniatures and a Programme of Open Studios, Demos and Workshops
The Marches Makers are pleased to announce that plans for the 2021 Festival are well underway.
Following the success of the 2019 festival demonstration programme we are focussing on ‘art in action’ for the 2021 event: Marches Makers Live. The festival will be both LIVE and ON-LINE to ensure compliance with any covid
restrictions that might be in place in May 2021... and to keep us all safe.
We are planning a programme of participatory workshops, art & craft demonstrations and taster sessions, and open studios in venues in the centre of Kington over the 3-day holiday weekend. Many of these sessions will be videoed so you can join in the fun from home. To complement the activities there will be an exhibition of small but perfectly formed artworks in Kington Baptist Church.
For the 2021’s festival exhibition we are only inviting submissions for Miniature Artworks. We hope you'll agree that our artists have been game and risen to this size limited challenge!!
