Gaelic Tree Alphabet banner-making project
Twenty primary schools in Ross and Cromarty took part in a Gaelic Tree Alphabet banner-making project. The Gaelic Tree Alphabet contains 18 letters each of which was traditionally linked with a tree name. The trees were used to help children learn the letters of the GaelicFour local artists; Jane Bregazzi, Eilidh Crumlish, Charlotte Mackenzie and Rosie Newman worked with pupils to develop these colourful banners using a variety of techniques including printing, painting and collage. The banners were printed onto a durable material to form bright and dramatic 3 metre high flags.
The project was organised by The Highland Council's Ross and Cromarty Community Learning and Leisure team with financial support from Scottish Natural Heritage and the Community Initiatives Fund of Bòrd na Gàidhlig.
