Maker's Details - Arnold, Bridget

Colourful flags and banners.

Category: Textiles
Bridget was given a gift when she learnt how to make flags from Veronica Gould and Andrea Foxwell who run the Moretonhampstead Flag Festival, this was part of her taking on the post to create flags with the community of Crediton. It was meant to be.

She then got funded by Bovey Tracey Town Council and involved with creating flags for Bovey Tracey Community Groups and Businesses.
All the Flags are put up in Bovey Tracey in time for the Contemporary Craft Festival and remain up until after the end of Devon Open Studios in September.
The Flags are all made of high quality colourful Balloon material, rip stop nylon sewn with polyester thread with Vilene reinforcement for the pole holder parts of the flags. They are sewn twice, straight sewing and zig zag to be extra secure. Pole holders are made by a local Blacksmith.

The banners and flags are all designed in response to a personal theme or to individual requirements They are all unique.
Bridget is available to talk to, as she lives in Bovey Tracey, about commissioning your own flag.  She runs residencies in schools and communities, who want their own flags, and also runs workshops at her own studio where you can come and make your own unique flag with her.
