Giant Jubilee frieze is taking shape
May 10, 2012
Work is under way to create a giant frieze depicting highlights of the Queen’s reign to mark her Diamond Jubilee.
Wokingham Art Society is painting the 34-metre frieze, which consists of 17 panels two metres wide and connected by ribbon to create a timeline showing relevant dates and events during the Queen’s reign.
The frieze will be on show in the council chamber at Wokingham Town Hall in Market Place on Sunday, June 3, and from Wednesday, June 6, until Sunday, June 9.
Members of Wokingham Art Society got together on Saturday, April 28, for a workshop to paint the frieze.
And the society is offering people the chance to create their own drawings when viewing the frieze. These will be added to the piece to form crowd scenes.
Wokingham Town Council’s Jubilee celebrations begin on Saturday, June 2, with a concert and continue to Sunday, June 3, with a lunch and REME procession.
Annet Pullen, from Wokingham Art Society said: “I think it is going very well. We are making good progress with it.
“We are very proud of it.”
