Barkingside Art Club Dragon Boat Project
We will be building a Dragon Boat together with children from schools, charities and our art workshops to be displayed during The Lord Mayor's Dragon Boat Race Day in Fairlop Waters on Saturday 28th of September for all to admire! The Dragon Boat will be made out of recycled wood, with schools & charities joining in to represent community, culture and inclusion.

The 4 m long, 3 m high Dragon Boat will be built and painted in collaboration with our regular workshop participants, and schools & charities that wish to be a part.
There will be 6 wooden panels to be painted by a school or chairty each - together forming the magnificent Dragon.
