Passionate artist Carol Parker was asked by Vicar of All Saints Church, Holbeach, Rosamund Seal to make four long textile banners for the bare pillars of the church.

Since the start of the year, Carol has been working with Holbeach and William Stukely Primary Schools to design the banners, and Holbeach Sewing Group to make the banners.

The elements are the themes for the banners: water, air, earth and fire. Carol and the sewing group started making them on Saturday.

The material has already been bought, cut and folded and they have the templates to begin work with.

Carol said: “I had a lovely time on Saturday, not just because there was tea and biscuits! We had a giggle too, they’re all really experienced. People were always coming in and interested in asking what was going on.”
