Carlisle is creating a community art installation to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One on November 2018. Thousands of handmade textile poppies will flow from the war memorial in the rotary in the center of the town to the new war memorial on the town common. For ArtWeek we will run workshops with age-appropriate poppy making projects. There will be cut-out felt poppies for children and parents (from 3-6 years), wet felting on the library lawn if weather permits for older children (and adults), and knitting and crochet lessons on creating poppies in the library. You will be expected to donate your poppy to the project; however, the smallest children can make one poppy for the project and also take one poppy home. You do not have to be a resident of the town to participate.
