Old Trafford has been creative in so many ways during Lockdown and we want to celebrate that!! This online exhibition showcases the wonderful diversity and talent in OT ranging from Professional artists though to young children and some people who have only started getting creative in Lockdown. We have divided the show into three catgories; Artists, Community and under 16’s.

You can still submit work until Wednesday 12th August.

Our Four Local judges will select a piece from each category to receive a £50 Fred Aldous voucher. There will be some vouchers for mosaic for further selected pieces.


Sally Hirst – Starry night weaving: I first started weaving at the beginning of lockdown and used a cardboard weaving loom originally but I enjoyed it so much that I bought a sample kit weaving loom with my artist commission money and really spent most of lockdown perfecting my weaving skills and my favourite weave is starry night where I did a wavy weaving background using different shades of blue, I also appliquéd some of my circular weaving and used a couching stitch with chunky yarn to make swirls. Some of the yarns I used includes shop bought, hand spun by me and t shirt yarn which I made out of an old t shirt
