Drop in to a Kettle’s Yard workshop, at Tate Exchange in London on 13 April.
Discover and join the festivities of North Cambridge’s annual Arbury Carnival.
Arbury Carnival comes to Tate Exchange! Join in and print, sew or decoration part of a giant patchwork fabric for this year’s Carnival in North Cambridge based on the theme Blue Planet.
Like London’s 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 invites the Arbury Carnival to Tate Exchange as a celebration of collaborative creativity. In addition to fabric making workshops, 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. Join us on 13 April and get involved!
This workshop takes place at the Tate Modern, Bankside, London. Visitors of all ages are welcome to drop in between 12.00 – 18.00 and participate in this event for free. Advance booking is not required.
