A sea of flowers will flood Oswestry later this year.

Oswestry Makes is returning this autumn and will commemorate the centenary of Armistice Day with the aptly named 'Flowers of Peace and Remembrance'.

But organisers of the annual festival need your help with some of the prep work to be done.

There's going to be plenty of workshops coming up with the first at Oswestry Library on Wednesday, March 7 when they will be making crochet flowers between 10am and 1pm, costing £5.

Then in April they will be creating felt and fabric flowers, felted flowers in May, cross-stitch bookmarks in July and paper flowers in August.

Some sessions are for adults only, however the April and August events will be open to people of all ages.

Debbie Marais, branch manager of Oswestry Library, said: "To get you started with your making we are holding a series of workshops at Oswestry Library – making crochet, felt, fabric and paper flowers.

"There will be other workshops happening throughout the year in the library and at various other venues around town."

The Oswestry Makes Festival will run over the weekend of October 13 and 14.

Throughout October there will be a month-long library exhibition of flowers that can be submitted any time up to Friday, September 28, while the library will host a free drop-in textile taster event on Saturday, October 13 and Wonderful Wood Day returns to the town on Sunday, October 14.
