Lets Make Banners and Flags

Making banners or flags is a fantastic way for a community to tell a story. Once created they can add colour and movement to your event.

They can be used many times and are easy and lightweight to store.

Please have a look at some of our past projects or download the flyer.

Why create a banner?

  • Bright and colourful.
  • Can tell a story.
  • Brings colour and movement to an event.
  • Multiple flags can fill a large space but pack down for storage.
  • Can be made by all ages, children and adult.
  • Great for group work.
  • Use to advertise your community group, made by your community.
  • Can be used outdoors or inside.
  • Make a flag or banner in a group or individually.

Some previous banner projects.

“Molong Stories” Molong, western NSW. Project developer/facilitator/artist in residence.

A community banner making project designed to give the residents of the small township of Molong, NSW the opportunity to tell their story on a banner.

As artist in residence I invited individuals, clubs, schools, and  pre-schools to make colourful banners that were used to decorate the street as part of the inaugural Molong Music and Arts Festival.

A diverse range of groups and individuals came along, designed, painted and chatted. Ranging from the local garden club, to a family that  took the first Bees to WA across the Nullabor, local schools and pre-school to local artists.

"Kids at Heart" festival, Dubbo, NSW. Banner making facilitator.

Invited to devise and facilitate a banner making project in the Orana region of NSW (Dubbo and Far West).

Many playgroups and childcare centres in the region created their own banners which were all given a common border. These were used to decorate a large open air festival in Dubbo, NSW as part of a Children’s week celebration.

"Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championships", Deloraine, Tasmania. Banner making facilitator/project creator.

The Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championships were held in Tasmania and centred upon Deloraine in the north. There were countries from all parts of the Commonwealth involved and a street parade was to be held to celebrate.

I was involved to facilitate a project that created links between local schools and the fly fishing event. 

Local schools were approached to create a banner illustrating one of the countries involved and then march in the parade carrying the banner and the country name walking with that country’s fly fishing team.

At the end of the parade the banners were given to the countries involved to take home and hopefully create links with schools in that country.
