FREE workshops inspired by our history
Inspired by the incredible collection of objects in the museum stores we’re trialing a sequence of creative afternoon workshops on the first Wednesday of each month.
We’d love you to join us.
The workshops will take place in a friendly space, led by supportive creative practitioners, each using an object as a source of inspiration to make jewelry, poems, sculpture or collage. Come and be part of something special from the start as we explore the museum collection together.
FREE, materials provided.
4 March 2020 -Make your constraints – 1pm – 3pm
Our latest exhibition at the museum explores the concepts of constraint and restraint, expressed though historic objects and newly commissioned artworks.
One of these commissioned artists, Milee Lee, will lead this workshop to add your work to the exhibition. Together you will explore constraints and how we view them, and make your own wearable paper artworks in response.
Shed your own constraints by leaving them for display in the gallery!
1 April – Activism: Right here, right now!- 1pm – 3pm
Thousands of people have marched, protested and hashtagged about Black Lives Matter, Austerity, Brexit, Democracy, Trump #MeToo and climate change locally, nationally and internationally.
Why do certain causes get more attention than others and do certain protestors have more privilege over working class, people of colour?
Join this creative workshop with Bo Olawoye, using discussion, collage and text to explore these issues and tell us what kind of creative workshop we should run in our next session about protest.
Come join us! We really want to hear our views!
