DREAM inspired patchwork panels created by Huddersfield school children will be sent to America to create a huge quilt that will be wrapped around a 363ft space rocket.
The Dream Rocket Project, which will see a replica model of the Saturn V Rocket wrapped in a patchwork quilt, is an international art project by artist Jennifer Marsh.
Students from Huddersfield University’s Textile Craft course helped pupils from All Saints Catholic College, Bradley Bar, and Netherhall Learning Campus, Rawthorpe, to create their own panels to send to the American art project.
The children, and thousands of participants from around the world, were asked to consider and express their dreams for a better future.
Some 8000 fabric panels will be needed to wrap around the replica moon rocket which stands at the US Space & Rocket Centre in Huntsville, Alabama.
Artist Jennifer said: “The wrapping of the Saturn V will recognise the power of global collaboration and in turn it hopes to inspire individuals all over the world not only to dream, but also to recognise their power to pursue dreams.”
Before the panels were sent to America, the children displayed them at the university’s library.
