Hypervelocity – Dewsbury

June 8, 2019

Back by popular demand, a set of 100 flags designed by community groups and produced by artist Wendy Meadley and originally commissioned by Kirklees Council for the Yorkshire Leg of the 2014 Grand Depart.

The designs created in workshops led by Tess Hills & Helen Davies and the particpating groups were:

Cowersley Community Out of School Club
Friend to Friend, Holmfirth
Gomersal Primary School
Meltham CE Primary School
Greenhead Park open workshop

The flags were then cut & sewn by Wendy Meadley, assisted by Helen Davies, using a reverse applique technique which resulted in exact copies of the designs.

They are flown on 15’ bamboo poles with a swivel mechanism to enable the pictures to be seen whether the wind blows or not.
