Phiona Richards, a popular Transported collaborator and textile artist, best known for her work with The Eloquent Fold, returns to Spalding for this session to help you create a unique-to-you concertina pocket book.

The book will primarily be made using paper and can be decorated with river-inspired designs or your favourite memories.

You can bring your book to our next session with Phiona, a guided walk along the Riverbank, where you will search for small treasures to keep or recreate in your book. This will give you a new perspective on the beauty of the natural world around us in Spalding.

This session and artwork are part of our Spalding Reconnected: Riverwalk activities.

Spalding Reconnected: Historic Town & Riverside is an exciting new community Arts and Heritage project celebrating and promoting the unique history of Spalding’s town and riverside. It is made possible thanks to National Lottery Heritage Fund, South Holland District Council, Heritage Lincolnshire, Transported Arts, East Mercia Rivers Trust and Lincolnshire County Council, and will seek to create and promote several townscape and riverside improvements, together with future funding opportunities all based on Spalding’s heritage.
Transported is working with these partners to make sure creativity and heritage play a central part in the regeneration of the town, making it a nicer more interesting and fun place to be.

This activity is free to participate in, and there is no need to book. Drop by any time during the activity. Please allow between 45 minutes to an hour to take part. The activity can be adapted for all ages, but we do require under 18s to be supervised by a parent or guardian.

Date: 1st July

Time: 9 am – 3 pm

Location: Spalding Market Place
