LETS MAKE ART and the Poster People Project!

Festival Favourites Lets Make Art are returning to the National Festival of Making with a brand new project: Poster People


Poster People is inspired by the paper dresses from the 60’s and slogan tees made popular by Katharine Hamnett in the 80’s. 

Children and their families are invited to create a wearable poster with a positive message using colourful paper and recycled materials. Exhibit your concerns on anything you want; from climate change to Marmite. Add images, graphics or patterns to make your words stand out around the streets of Blackburn.
