The Big Draw ‘Boatanicals’ is now in place at Princess Pavilions for all to see. Those who took part include; Penryn College, Constantine Primary School, Marlborough School, Falmouth Primary School , Falmouth Young Women’s Group, Foundation Diploma in Art & Design students, BA(Hons) Illustration students, postgraduate students, Make and Take Community workshops and the general public. Contributors ranged from 2 years to 80+, and there are around 300 flowers and boats or hybrids of the two. Weather permitting (no persistent gales we hope) the installation will be up for a month. There will be a celebratory gathering this Sunday 19 March between 1 & 2 pm, and at 2pm there will be a press photo shoot. This ‘planting out’ celebration coincides with the Falmouth Spring Flower Show, which is held at the Princess Pavilion this weekend, 18-19 March.
This project has been really successful, thanks to a committed team of Foundation Staff including Tilly McKerrow, Emelia Wharfe, Sarah Hayes and Jane Chetwynd, plus some keen students from both the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design and MA programmes.
