Colourful Fabric Flags with Shiny Productions

Using images of local architecture and landmarks as inspiration, design your own flag using heat transfer papers, which will be magically transferred onto a fabric flag. Heat transfer printing is a way to dye and print on fabrics to create interesting textures marks and intense colour. Perfect for family groups and young people!

Patricia of Shiny Productions has considerable experience from schools based arts education work, arts projects within a range of community settings, international participatory arts work, residencies and participatory work within commercial settings. She has been involved in a number of site specific arts commissions working as an artist, producer and project coordinator.

These commissions have included acting as the lead artist on: National Trust and Birmingham University – Privy to Porcelain Project working with 15-17 year olds, exploring the historical collections at the Back to Backs, National Trust property and Winterbourne House and Garden in University of Birmingham. Patricia has experience working with and within a number of historic/heritage settings as an artist.



Her work and approach is in keeping with the source materials and taking a new approach to their redesign and creating a new context for them. For example, she was commissioned by Waddeston Manor to design a new range of kitchen products using clocks from the Rothschild collection for the gift shop and commissioned to produced the corporate silk giftware for Cadburys Schweppes world wide using their archive collection and company history.
