Become Part of Cornwall’s Story Shelter

You are invited to contribute a fabric patch or panel to become part of a large collective shelter as part of Wildworks’ Hello Stranger project.

Aim – To create a Safe Haven, a Story Shelter to welcome a stranger to Cornwall.

What is it? – The Shelter will be composed of a series of fabric panels made by individuals or groups using recycled fabrics. The completed panels will be gathered and transformed into a tent.

How will you make it? – The panels will be created in various ways; you don’t need to be an expert at sewing. Be bold and be brave! Please see the booklet below for dimensions and further instructions.

Who is it for? Everyone! The tent will be on public display in October 2024.

Can I get involved? – YES. Everyone can get involved either by taking part in a group setting or by making your own patch at home.

When? – The panels and patches need to be finished and sent by Wednesday 31st July 2024.

How do I get them to you? – Drop off to our collection basket situated in the Hall for Cornwall, Lemon Quay Café or post to Bec Applebee at Wildworks, Hall for Cornwall, Back Quay, Truro, TR1 2LL.
