The festival is taking place from 4 – 8 September 2017*, 11am to 6pm at Birmingham Cathedral Square, Colmore Row, Birmingham, B3 2QB, where people can get involved with the making of some of the artworks using different techniques; embroidery, casting in concrete, enamelling, manipulating wire and spinning wool.
Different artists will be working each day and at the end of the week visitors can expect to see the space adorned with twelve new art works including a Camera Obscura, a crocheted chandelier, architectural wire sculptures and a textile tribute to historical figures buried in the graveyard echoing the shape of the Cathedral’s stained glass windows.
