Let’s Fill Leytonstone with Art – the 2020 Poster

This years poster is dedicated to Flash Bristow who was a friend of the Leytonstone Arts Trail for many years. She sadly passed away some months ago.
She was a real community player and a particular champion for disability rights, often being interviewed by the media when they wanted to talk about access issues. She admired pylons and set up the “Pylon Appreciation Society” (and yes… there is such a thing).
She was on the organising committee for the Leytonstone Arts Trail in it’s early days and then went on to curate art exhibitions in the little free gallery known as “Slate”; once situated in the window of Leytonstone Library alongside the “Stone Space”.
She decorated her window many times as part of the “Let’s Fill” project. The photo on this years poster is the last time she put art in her window. Thanks for all your enthusiasm Flash – you are missed!

Do download and print off the poster to help us publicise the “Let’s Fill” Project. We look forward to seeing what you put in your windows and gardens this year – Thanks for your support!

The 2021 Lets Fill Poster is here!

So here we have it – the 2021 Poster – please feel free to print off and put it in your window alongside the great creations you all do for us to enjoy each summer!

This year we have made it possible for people to register their window or garden art as part of the main Leytonstone Arts Trail… Of course – it is not obligatory but a dot on our online map might get more people passing by your window and looking at your work.

Due to the short amount of time we have had to organise the Leytonstone Arts Trail this year, we are not having a paper guide and are experimenting with an online map. As a result it is costing us less to put the trail together and the registration fee has been dropped to £5 – so this means that it is affordable for window artists to award yourselves a dot on the map – Go on – have a go!

The UK’s Biggest Art Exhibition

So in 2020 Leytonstone and the country filled it’s windows with Rainbows in support of the NHS and the key workers who had to continue work to keep us going during the Pandemic!

In 2021 famous artists are encouraging us to fill our windows and gardens with art again.
Let’s face it – Leytonstone is good at that!
You only have to go to our gallery on this site to see how much we have done; we have been doing this for years haven’t we!
Anyway – It is good to see the world catching on with this idea, so click into the links in the BBC article below and download your pack to be a part of this!

We need rainbows in our lives…

We have brought forward the 2020 Lets Fill Leytonstone with Art project as part of the rainbows project which is going on throughout the country and maybe the world. Rainbows are being put in peoples windows as a symbol of hope during the time of the spread of the coronavirus. We don’t know if we will be able to run the Leytonstone Arts Trail this year so we felt this is something else that would brighten peoples lives in this very difficult time. So go for it – wherever you are in the world. Draw/ paint/ collage/mosaic – whatever – just make a rainbow and put it in your window! Thanks xxx

Here is the beginning of my window rainbow 🙂

Every year a family on Leyspring Road do some really creative installations – this was last years one! It changed throughout the summer…
