Community Rainbow Bunting Resource

Community Rainbow Bunting Resource

During lockdown we have worked with community artist Jo Teague, supported by Gloucester Culture Trust, to develop this new Art for Wellbeing Community Rainbow Bunting Resource!

The symbol of the rainbow has been used during COVID-19 lockdown for many reasons; to brighten up our local communities, to symbolise hope after difficult times and to show support for the NHS and key workers.

This resource shows you how to make your own colourful bunting to hang at home – there’s a handout to download and a fab film to show you all the steps.  

If you don’t have materials at home we do have a limited number of simple craft packs available. To apply for a free Bunting Craft Pack:
Email with your name and postal address and we will send out a pack (please note this is a local community project so we cannot post packs overseas).

Display your bunting at Gloucester Cathedral

We’d love to celebrate the creativity of our local community by showcasing bunting made using this resource in a display at the Cathedral!

The display will take place after lockdown has eased, when the Cathedral is back open to the general public.

If you would like us to display bunting that you have made (why not make some extra so you can keep some at home?) please send an email to and we will get in touch to arrange a drop off point for you. If you wish your bunting to be returned to you after the display please let us know when you email.

Please note that we may need to keep hold of your bunting for some time until lockdown has eased before it can be displayed.

If you would like us to keep your bunting please let us know when you drop it off. 

After it is displayed we will donate a portion to the Museum of Gloucester for their ‘A Life in Lockdown’ Exhibition: Memories of Covid-19 in Gloucestershire 2020'.  The remainder will be donated to a local care home to brighten communal areas for residents.
