Sleaford’s National Centre for Craft and Design is working in partnership with local digital iPad artist, Jason Wilsher-Mills.

Funded by Arts Council England, The Sleaford Remembers project is part of the centenary events, remembering those who fought in the First World War, and brings together theatre, music and a digital installation, along with nearly 1,000 children from four local primary schools.

It will culminate in a live performance on Tuesday November 11, where the children will perform with Rhubarb Theatre and folk musician, Morris Minor, unveiling the digital installation projected onto the outside of the NCCD, 70ft high.

Sleaford people have the opportunity to contribute to this digital installation by working with Jason in a series of six workshops at the NCCD. You will learn new skills about how to make art using iPads whilst you create your tribute to those who fought in the Great War - perhaps even using your own family photographs and memories as source material. The work created will be incorporated into the digital installation.

Workshops will take place on November 3 and 11.

They are free, suitable for ages 11 upwards and run from 3-5pm. For an extra fee you can obtain a print of your artwork.
