Happy Bonfire Night

Happy Guy Fawkes night from Create Display! We love Bonfire night on the south coast of England and the bright flashes of colour really lift the spirits on a dark winters night.

This year the sky has been full of colour, bangs and wizzes as the fireworks burst into their neon glory all over our local village.

It is the perfect time to pop up our latest handcrafted design, an upcycled denim backdrop to add some nautical texture and really set off our colourful interior artworks.

We used a dozen pairs of old jeans to handmake this eco friendly display background. We are very pleased with how it adds individuality and interest to our area at Bosham Walk Art and Craft Centre.

The idea was inspired by the Japenese art of Boro where fabric was precious so Japenese people hand sewed hundereds of small pieces of denim together to make new materials they could make into clothing and home furnishings.

Our Create Display Banner with silver stars is the perfect signage banner to top off our new display background.

We backed the blue and chestnut patchwork cloth with calico and added customised curtain tape to the hanging edge. Using a drill we attached a baton with brass hooks as high up as possible to give us maximum visual impact.

We look forward to adding new pieces of denim as we go along and as we put up fresh  pieces over the coming season.


Do visit us at Bosham Walk to see all the art and crafts arranged on two spacious floors.

Enjoy a stroll along the harbour and a delicious tea at Wendy's cosy cafe.

This thrifty recycled fabric wall hanging will be a creative customised collage that develops as we go forward.
