HOPE For Ukraine – Sunflower Making Workshop

Fri 24 February, 2023
Come and join Derby CAN with the wonderful local artist Marie Hegarty for making, decorating and creating sunflowers of hope for Ukraine.

On Friday 24th February Derby CAN is running an afternoon of FREE creative craft Sunflower workshops for the community of Derby to make sunflowers with messages of HOPE for Ukraine. These sunflowers will then be carried in a peace procession happening that evening in which you are welcome to join! (Procession details below.)

Once you have made your sunflower you can then write on the leaf or petal a message of hope that will then be tied to a tree sculpture in the Cathedral at the end of the procession that evening.

To guarantee a place please book a time slot. – There will also be chance to drop by during the day if there is space available.
If you’re under 16, please attend with an adult or guardian. – No upper age limit, all welcome!

The event peace procession is an interfaith initiative co-produced by the Derby Ukrainian community, Multi faith centre, Derby University, Derby Cathedral & Derby CAN. For more details on the peace procession, prayer vigil and where to hang your message of hope in the Cathedral please see below.
