Hello and welcome to Press and Print
Would you like to take part in a community arts project from home with a FREE creative kit from South Gloucestershire Council?
Artists Kerry Lemon (@kerrylemonart) and Zoe Murphy (@margategirl) will be showing everyone how to collect & preserve flowers from your local area AND how to turn your collection into stunning shadow art prints using only the sunshine!
Our easy crafty kits are suitable for all ages and part of a wider arts project with South Glos Council.
It is FREE to take part and all the equipment and instructions you’ll need are included in the pack.
Explore and have fun, we CANNOT wait to see your beautiful prints.
Kits are limited so please pop over to the ‘Join In‘ page to register your details.
The Press and Print Project
Artist Kerry Lemon (www.kerrylemon.co.uk) has been commissioned to create a series of permanent artworks for the communities of Emersons Green and Lyde Green. She is inspired by the local plants and flowers found across the area and is looking for your help to make the work.
You are invited to take part in this project by signing up for a FREE Press and Print kit and following along with the instructions (videos & guides coming soon!) The project is broken down into three stages:
The kit will guide you through exploring your area to collect and press local flowers. These pressed flowers, and your role in collecting them, will become part of a permanent floral collection at Bristol Museum!
The kit contains EVERYTHING you need to create beautiful (but very easy!) photographic prints from your flowers. These floral prints will be created across the community and artist Kerry Lemon will select the best ones to use in her permanent sculptures!
Finally, we’ll invite you to display these prints in your front windows to form a community exhibition.
