Come and join artist Andrew Omoding on a music making and flag parade to mark the end of his current solo exhibition, ‘Welcome to Me Scarborough. To See and Hold my Work.’ We will be using recycled materials to make musical instruments and flags inspired by Andrew’s, before going on a walking parade led by Andrew with our creations into the Woodend gardens. Participants are then welcomed back to the gallery space for free tea, coffee and cake, and a last chance to see the exhibition, meet the artist and have a chat.

All are welcome to this free event, but please book tickets so we know numbers.

About the Artist
Andrew Omoding (b.1987) is an Ugandan born, London based artist who creates largely autobiographical sculptural works through an intuitive process of using materials he gathers and evolves around stories describing his life and the world around him. His mixed media sculptures, books and costumes are made using found materials that he weaves, wraps and sews. These works are often activated through performances led by Andrew. Andrew Omoding is a studio artist at ActionSpace, a London based visual arts organisation that supports learning disabled artists.
