Susan Forbes who grew up on Jubilee Road, Doncaster is showcasing her vintage art and crafts techniques at the Big Launch event in Sir Nigel Gresley Square on Sunday, 3 June.
Susan, an experienced textiles artist who offers workshops and classes around the Doncaster area, will be encouraging people who attend the big Jubilee event to have a go at creating their own Jubilee inspired textiles.
Her vintage looking stand is part of a wide range of activities and entertainment lined up for visitors to the free event which runs between 1 and 5pm in Waterdale, Doncaster town centre.
Commenting on the event, Susan said: "As a local community artist who has delivered visual art sessions to all ages and abilities in every area in our borough, I am proud to take part in this exciting event. I look forward to passing on my textiles skills and passion for art and crafts to both the young and elder generations of Doncaster. Look out for fabric bunting and brooches, diamonds and crowns, corgis and guards!"
Mayor of Doncaster, Peter Davies, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for people to learn a new and interesting skill. There are loads of things people can participate in and enjoy at the Big Launch – it’s going to be a fabulous day.”
