Join in and print, sew and decorate part of a giant patchwork fabric for this year’s Carnival in North Cambridge.
Like all Carnivals, Arbury Carnival is a powerful event that brings community, creativity and celebration together. For over 40 years, the annual Arbury Carnival has acted as a vital festivity that supports local community groups. Exploring answers to the question ‘what is community production?’, Kettle’s Yard bring the Arbury Carnival to Tate Exchange as a celebration of collaborative creativity. The fabric making workshops are developed by artists Hilary Cox-Condron, Sophie Cullinan and Joe Lyward. Additionally, you can meet Arbury Carnival committee members, learn more about organising community events and explore the Carnival’s 40-year history.
Kettle’s Yard has worked with North Cambridge communities to establish a long-term creative partnership, building on Kettle’s Yard founder Jim Ede’s belief in making art open to all. Kettle’s Yard houses Jim Ede’s carefully curated collection of modern art within a domestic setting, embodying Ede’s commitment to a harmony between art and life. Jim, and his wife Helen’s home became a meeting point for many artists, poets and musicians. The Edes helped produce a creative community alongside a sense of collaboration and belonging that continues at Kettle’s Yard to this day.
This event is programmed by Kettle's Yard a Tate Exchange Associate.
