During the last few weeks, Some:when has been the core of our work both by learning for and from it. Some:when workshops during Somerset Arts Weeks was a fascinating experience, thanks to everyone who came.
The sail of the Flatner is already started! A number of participants both young and adults looked at their experiences of the flooding by locating themselves in the relationship between human being, land and water in the Somerset Levels and Moors. During the process of converting the plastic bags into the sail patchworks, many ideas and interesting conversations happened. Some ideas about how Somerset Levels and Moors could be in the future or representations from memory, were the focus of the participants, a mix of interesting stories where imagination was the key.
In addition, it was very interesting to hear stories about people related with the Flatner personally in one way or another, when memories are still there and some people still remember this boat being around their lives in the past or even knowing people who still have one. We are still in the track to find more information about it, fascinating.
Thanks in special to the Youth Club and Somerset Art Works for such a great support.
Here there are some images of the workshops.
We will be running some workshops in the short future in order to continue making the sail of the Flatner, keep an eye in our agenda.
