Make Your Mark On Wembley Park With One Of These Creative Workshops

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Wembley Park.

Ever wanted to make your mark on one of London's world-class public spaces?

This summer, Wembley Park is giving you the chance to do just that. As part of the Summer of Play programme, Londoners are invited to celebrate the area's green heritage through an exciting line-up of guerrilla arts workshops, all with a helping hand, of course.

Emergency Exit Arts has teamed up with textile artist Helen Davenport, wood carving artist Stephen Stockbridge and leading illustrator Emma Barnie, who'll be ready to help you get those creative juices flowing — your creations will end up as permanent public artworks.

Your masterpieces will be installed in Wembley Park this autumn, making you a permanent part of the area's public spaces. It's the ultimate humble-brag, and something unique to point out to your mates next time you're out in the area.

But what will you create?

There's lots to get involved with, from floral-themed festival flag painting workshops — where you'll be creating pieces to line Wembley Park's iconic boulevards — to wood carving, where you'll try your hand at producing benches and totem poles from some of the area's recently removed trees.  

The final creations from each workshop will be completed off site by the Emergency Exit Arts team, who will get to work installing them across Wembley Park this autumn. From then on, a little piece of you will be immortalised in Wembley history forever, and that's pretty cool, right?

Little ones can get involved too, with flag making and illustration workshops taking place over the August bank holiday weekend. The bank holiday sessions are completely free, and all materials are provided.

Events are taking place throughout the season as part of Wembley Park's Summer of Play. Wood carving workshops take place on 10, 11, 17 and 19 August. Little ones can join in with free drop-in sessions on Sunday 26 and Monday 27 August. Check out the full line-up and book your tickets here.
