Sirens of the Sound

May 6 @ 10:30 am 12:00 pm

Join ‘Sirens of The Sound’ – a new community sewing circle celebrating the working-class history of Plymouth Sound and part of the Plymothian sea re-connection project ‘The Gathering’

The brand-new sewing circle comprises of 6 online sessions (one a month) which will run on the first Saturday of every month starting in January 2023 from 10.30am to 12.00 midday. ‘Sirens of the Sound’ online session dates are taking place on:

· Sat 07 January 10:30 – 12:00 GMT
• Sat 04 February 10:30 – 12:00 GMT
• Sat 04 March 10:30 – 12:00 GMT

• Sat 06 May 10:30 – 12:00 BST
• Sat 03 June 10:30 – 12:00 BST

Each session will be a free workshop and will help members produce beautiful, embroidered artwork pieces for an exhibition in Plymouth celebrating the coastline in the summer of 2023.

The sessions will be led by Melinda Schwakhofer – an American artist and citizen of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation with Austrian-American ancestry who now lives and works on Dartmoor – and Karen Evans – lead artist for The Conscious Sisters CIC.

The six sessions will also include guest speakers to help inspire participants with stories of the ocean whilst they sew.

Please note: The six-session programme is a series of sessions not a drop in and it is essential that those who sign up can attend most/all the sessions. All materials will be provided, participants simply connect via a zoom link that will be provided.

Last week Ranger Nick went over to @mountedgcumbe for a volunteer day with the Mount Edgecumbe volunteers. They planted Lime trees, which are long-lasting and perfect for withstanding our coastal conditions.

If you want to volunteer with Nick as part of the #PSNMP volunteer programme, please email Nick at nick.helm@plymouth.gov.uk.
