Artists Emily Cartwright, and Jamie Hawker (of JRH Services) have developed a float proposal for the revival of the Spalding Flower Parade.
‘The Bee’ theme addresses our current era of environmental awareness. The proposal includes workshops with groups and schools so that as many local residents as possible will have a real ‘hands-on’ experience of the flower parade.
Using natural, reclaimed or recyclable materials like willow, origami and paper techniques, small scale items will be made for the parade, along with a ‘Queen Bee’ mobile sculptural feature that processes at the centre of our section of the parade with costumed ‘worker bee’ primary school children accompanying, alongside riders of mobility scooters that are adorned with giant flowers.
We’ll keep you updated on the progress of the parade artworks and share designs on our social media.
The project is sponsored by the Spalding Town Forum on behalf of it’s residents.
