Call for creative poppies

Droitwich Arts Network monthly meeting 9th October will be all creative. It would be dedicated to creating a poppy wreath for the Remembrance Sunday. The wreath will be designed from individual poppies made in various techniques and materials – paper, fabrics, felt, crochet, knitting, painting, clay…- and put together during the evening meeting at Park’s Cafe in the centre of Droitwich Spa. 

We are calling all DAN members to create their poppies in any material and technique they wish (paperwork can be laminated to endure the weather), bring them to the meeting and take part in creating the unique wreath.

Droitwich Arts Network representative will attend Remembrance Service and wreath-laying at the war memorial at Victoria Square on 10th November. 

Wednesday, 9th October 2019, Park’s Cafe, 4 Victoria Square, Droitwich Spa, at 7.30pm.
