With an extensive history of successfully achieving creative, inclusive and diverse projects for schools Durham Bannermakers can design the perfect banner project to inspire a living memory that lasts for generations.
A basic project can include 3 full days in your school with banner artist Emma Shankland (BA sculpture/installation, MA museum and gallery education, 20 years in schools and communities as artist in residence and workshop leader)
+ Drawing with 4 classes
+ Painting the banner, maximum 16 pupils per day, 4 per session.
+ Banner delivered fully sewn with backing and silk border and lightweight carrying poles.
“Emma and the children have really done a great job at encapsulating the values of St William's. The staff and children are very proud of the banner and we look forward to sharing it with the rest of our community” - Headteacher M Tiplady

“It has been a lovely project and it is wonderful to celebrate our heritage in this way. The banner is now in a prominent position in the school hall but it’s also available for the community to use at events.” - Headteacher Kathryn Heatherington
We also offer studio visits and workshops to kick start your project. Contact us to discuss your ideas and desired outcomes.
