The creative juices were flowing at Haverhill Arts Centre where a drop-in workshop was held in a bid to unearth some inspiration for this summer’s Haverhill Flag Festival.

The workshop attracted a steady flow of visitors when it took place on Monday (February 18) as many youngsters took advantage of their school half term to show off their artistic talents.

Attendees were invited to develop their own seasonal flag designs, with the assistance of two artists, using supplied materials.

Project manager Nick Keeble said: “We had a very good turnout. The workshop was busy all day and it resulted in about 100 different ideas and designs.

“A range of ages took part, from two right up to adults, and the creativity and artistic skills of everyone who took part was evident, with some really creative and unexpected designs being produced.

“It was an excellent start to our community engagement project but we still want to people sending in their ideas to flags@cb9haverhill.co.uk.

“The next step is for the Design Office and graphic artist Amanda Smith to gain inspiration from the art work to produce some eye-catching designs that can be translated into flags. “Watch this space, the town centre is sure to be a riot of colour this summer.

The flags will feature the CB9 logo and eventually be displayed in High Street and Market Square during the festival.

Bunting will also go up in High Street and Queen Street.
