On Sunday 3rd July 2016, we ran our first workshop in Camden Market’s North Yard. We arrived at mid-morning to set up, just as the market stallholders were wheeling out their clothing rails and winding up their awning, and the deep fat fryers were starting to heat up in the food stalls along the way. We turned the picnic tables round to form one long communal table and got to work preparing our assortment of papers, new and old.
Lunchtime drawing close, wandering passers-by picking up and the flower making gathering pace.
Taking a pause in the hustle and bustle of the market place to sit and make
Sitting, making and then talking. The hum of chattering languages filled the air.
Many hands make light work
A little help along the way
Some wishes for the goddess Yemanjá in exchange for their offering…
Sixty people took part in Project Yemanjá on Sunday in Camden Market from Camden, London, Spain, Portugal, Norway, Turkey, USA, Israel, China, Venezuala, Australia and beyond!
Flowers ready to decorate the Yemanjá boat.
Come and make your own flower with Project Yemanjá because until you start, you never know what will happen, surprise yourself by what you can do. Our next workshop is on Sunday 17th July at St Pancras Square Library, 12 – 4pm.
