Trickster Trailer Flag Lab

Sunday 12 June 2022
Robertson Street, Hastings
11-4pm, free

Make a flag and take it home!

Ever since the first rainbow-hued flag was hand-stitched and dyed by volunteers in 1978, flags have been a colourful symbol for everyone under the LGBTQ+ umbrella to express pride in who they are.

In this drop-in workshop you can work with the artists to design your own flag for the future, using symbols, colours and pattern that have meaning to you.

The workshop will include hands-on natural dying with local wild plants and flowers plus writing and drawing with natural inks.

No previous experience or skills are required and all materials will be provided. Come down and join us!

In line with Home Live Art’s commitment for making the arts available to everyone, this event is free to attend and take part in. Join us for a fun opportunity to get creative and learn more about inclusion for everyone aged 6+.

The Trickster Trailer is a mobile art and ecology laboratory, built using waste materials from major cultural institutes (Tate, National Portrait Gallery and British Museum) art handling and shipping departments.

It is a touring laboratory that hosts workshops, talks, performance, exhibition and films exploring the intersections of locality, nature and climate crisis to reconnect people to the land through creative community action.

Part of the Knotty Festival of Perfomance, a weekend of bold and joyful performances on the streets of Hastings and St Leonards.
