Manchester Day Headpiece workshop Friday 25 May, 6-8pm

REDBRICKERS, YOUR ESTATE NEEDS YOU!

Manchester Day 2018 – Headpiece workshop 6-8pm, this Friday 25th May


Everyone is invited to join an informal making session at the Wow Workshop.

Address: Upper Campfield Market, (Corner of Deansgate and Liverpool Rd), Barton St, Manchester M3 4NN

Starting with baseball hat foundations, we’ll be constructing anarchic, creative and colourful headpieces – first using spray paint to create a pattern of choice, then adding random bits of jewellery, coloured fake hair and any other adornment that a person might want to contribute to their individual hip-hop punk rock look.

Ruta, the artist working with us, will provide the hats and other materials but people are welcome to bring their own bits and bobs to make each one a unique piece of art.

It promises to be a fun and inspiring evening and, by the end of it, we’ll each have a badass hat to rock the Parade.

Please RSVP to: marlousveldt@gmx.net

Do share this invite, bring friends along, everybody welcome!

Maggie’s Meadow – mosaic making & ash scattering 12th & 19th May

Maggie Sansam, longtime Redbricks’ gardener, great friend and neighbour to many of us, and fellow trouble causer, very sadly passed away last year. In addition to all the community work on TARA and organising events that she did, she also lovingly cared for and helped develop the wildflower and bulb meadow on Letsby Avenue over many years, and she cultivated the flower bed that runs along side it.

When she was dying in the hospice Lucy W told her that we were going to rename the meadow Maggie’s Meadow and she was thrilled. We will be making a mosaic sign with Maggie’s Meadow on it with yet-to-smash-up crocks in the tenants’ office, 26a Humberstone Avenue,  Saturday 12th May – 2pm 

If you are into smashing things up then putting them back together better than they were before then come join us. Grout, tea and biscuits provided.

Then on Saturday 19th May at 2pm we will be erecting the sign and scattering Maggie’s ashes on Letsby Avenue, planting a rose called Margaret, and raising a toast to her and all the good that she brought to our community and our lives.

All are welcome.

Manchester Day Parade meeting Thurs 10 May, 7pm at NIA MOS

Manchester Day producers Walk the Plank are rather excited at having us on board for the first time and have paired us up with an amazing puppeteer/visual artist called Ruta Staseviciute. This year’s theme is “The Word on the Street,” which can encompass any topic that is dear to our collective hearts; it can be subversive, anarchic, cheeky and fun. The only limit is the imagination of the group!

Meet the team from Walk the Plank and get working on the Bentley House section
Thursday 10th May at 7pm at the N.I.A.M.O.S arts centre (the old NIA Centre). It’s on the corner of Chichester Road and Warwick Street (postcode M15 5UP), behind the Hulme Garden Centre.

 
Bring along friends and ex-residents, the more the merrier!
