About

Beeston Library
Friday 21 February 2020 | 10am - 12pm
Free, no booking required

Make a macrame keyring. Join artist Rachel Carter in this two-hour practical workshop and have a go at a knotting technique that she will be using for her Mayflower commissions in this anniversary year.

2020 marks 400 years since Pilgrims from Nottinghamshire set sail on the Mayflower for America. Mayflower 400 artist Rachel Carter has been tracing her Nottinghamshire ancestry while working on a new sculpture inspired by the Mayflower story. She has explored this idea in recent adventures, crossing the Atlantic by boat and in artist residencies at Harvard’s Peabody Museum & the Pilgrim Monument and Museum in Provincetown USA. 

Rachel is working with groups in Nottinghamshire to explore ancestry and knotting, to create a touring exhibition for Nottinghamshire Libraries linked to her family history, the Mayflower story and her own work.

No need to book. Just drop in.

For ages 7yrs+ and their families.
