BA Fine Art student presents interactive design

A BA (Hons) Fine Art student from UCA Farnham has created an interactive poppy design for members of the Farnham community to leave personal messages on in commemoration of the First World War Centenary.

Commissioned by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Women’s Association, who raise money for the Poppy Appeal each year, the hanging banner was designed by second-year Eleanor McLean and – along with the original framed artwork – was presented to the Mayor of Farnham at a ceremony held at UCA. The banner will hang in Sainsbury’s carpark from Saturday 3 November, and members of the public are being encouraged to leave their messages and a donation for the Poppy Appeal.
