Pebble painting workshops – Lasting Memories Project

East Cliff Creative’s Lasting Memories Project, to commemorate peace after WW1, is gaining a real momentum but there are still many pebbles to be painted before the end of June. If you or anyone you know would like to make their mark on a few there are a number of free walk-in painting workshops:

May 11th Folkestone Library 10am-2pm
May 16th Block67, 67 Tontine St 11am-7pm
May 17th Cheriton Library 10am-12pm
May 19th Block67, 67 Tontine St 10am-4pm

The project is growing rapidly with over 1,500 school children taking part in painting pebbles at schools and youth centres.
They only have to paint 20,000!!!! Each one will be a mini artwork that will become part of the seven giant Beach Poppies to be constructed on the 29th/30th June. Anyone can take part and you don’t have to be an artist.
To find out more here are a few links that will explain:

Lasting Memories is centred around the creation of seven giant poppies on the beaches of Folkestone at the end of June 2019. The poppies will be created from around 20,000 Folkestone pebbles. Each pebble will be its own mini artwork, painted using special eco-friendly paint by the community, young and old. Everyone is welcome!

The Poppies will represent the seven months between the Armistice of WW1 and eventual peace, with the signing of the treaty of Versailles on June 28th 1919. Each poppy will represent stories from seven themes that impacted on the local community during this time.
