A range of photographs for you from yesterday! There is our new addition 3rd panel and some bags made within workshops! 

Thank you to everyone who came along yesterday and got involved! I know a few are still working on theirs and I look forward to seeing them!

Huge thanks again to Packhorse Gallery for being brilliant hosts! The project will remain on exhibition until the end of the month, and there is something in the works to get a handful exhibited somewhere new…TBC!

The Blood Bag Project will be at this event (click the title link for more details) in Huddersfield on the 15th December, and I am very grateful and excited to say that all proceeds from the events raffle will go to DBAUK!! Thank you to When Jaq met Medusa!!

Here are some photographs from the HOST weekend as promised!  Don’t the bags look amazing?

The response from the public was great! Kids and grown ups loved the project and the effort put into each individual bag. 

Every bags donated so far was on exhibit, with a 177 in total.  I don’t think the photographs quite do the display the justice it deserves. It had a really stunning visual impact, stopping everyone who walked through the theatre in their tracks and recieving a lot of compliments.

Workshops were held alongside the display and photographs of the making will follow.

It was a really lovely weekend and the project was able to reach quite a large audience, with a steady flow of visitors coming through the theatres doors throughout the whole weekend.  There was also a lot of interest from the public in getting involved at home! Note to self: Always bring extra BBP info postcards!

Thanks again to everyone who has made a bag so far, and I hope your as proud as I am!

Here are some photographs of last weeks New Designers. Enjoy the sneak peak ‘behind the scenes’ photographs of the University of Huddersfield’s stand.

I was also lucky enough to meet Lucie whilst I was there, a student who came along to the show and was drawn to the Blood Bag Project, only to discover it was about her own rare blood condition. It was well worth displaying just to meet another person affected by DBA.

I’m VERY happy to say that The Blood Bag Project has an exhibition venue!  During September HOST has an Open Studio Trail for artists in the Kirklees area.  I have applied for The Blood Bag project to exhibit at The Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield, one of the most attended venues of the trail!  PLUS, this will be just after the target date (100 bags by August 31st) so there’ll be plenty of bags to choose from to exhibit!!
