Baildon Diamond Jubilee Project

Sponge Tree are pleased to announce their Diamond Jubilee Project, which will be commencing on 26th March 2012. Each Baildon Primary School will contribute time and space to for us to provide wet felting workshops. Every child in each school will create a piece of felt with reds, whites and blues. Every piece of dried felt will then be collected from the schools.

Sponge Tree will then create four textile panels. Each panel will be an animal which is of importance to our Queen Elisabeth II.
We have the Welsh Corgi dog, the Suffolk horse, the Royal Mute swan and the red stag deer.

The first felting workshop will commence at Sandal Primary School on Monday 26th March. We will then be at Hoyle Court Primary School from Monday 16th April, The Church School from Monday 23rd April and Glenaire from Monday 30th April.

The four panels with Baildon School Children are invited to be in the Lord Mayor's Diamond Jubilee Parade on Sat 19th May!!!!!!

Sponge Tree would like to say huge thank you to Baildon Parish Council and Q20 Theatre for funding this project.
