Todmorden Town Council has generously supported the Todmorden Treat, a project to give each primary school an experience of working with the same artist or performer during the spring term. We are grateful for their support again this year, which will allow artist Cath Ford to run a full day workshop at each school. Celebrating Todmorden will explore and communicate the unique characteristics, heritage, communities and geography of Todmorden.
Each workshop will result in a series of A2 posters, inspired by vintage travel posters, which will celebrate Todmorden in the local area and promote it to people living outside the town.
As each workshop takes place we will share the posters on this blog. First up are St Joseph’s RC Primary School. We think Mr Sutcliffe’s pupils came up with some beautiful posters. We would like to see the posters the schools create shared far and wide, so that the pupils can see their hard work, and the places that are important to them, being appreciated by the wider community.
Are you a group/organisation in Todmorden who would like to use them to promote the area and/or what you do? If you would like Jpegs of the posters please get in touch by emailing Melanie.
