'MAKE IT YOURS' CREATIVE WORKSHOPS
Make it Yours workshops are back at the National Justice Museum! You’re invited to drop into our Creative Courtyard and make something inspired by the museum collection.
Our creative sessions are free and open to all. Join us to make and create together and contribute to our growing museum! The sessions will be led by artists, makers and writers, all influenced by this unique museum. Register using the Eventbrite links below.
Please note, you will need to choose a timeslot when booking through Eventbrite. This is so all workshops adhere to current social distancing guidelines.
Handmade pin hole camera
Inspired by an ingenious camera hidden in a parcel from the museum collection! Join us and learn how to build and take photos with a pinhole camera.
Hosted by photographer Mariano Doronzo, images of your handmade camera will appear in a special display about ingenuity.
Free: All welcome and all materials are provided.
Join illustrator Barbara Sandin in a character design session for beginners. Together, in a friendly and playful atmosphere, we will learn the basics of drawing and storyboard techniques to make our ‘alter-ego’ characters powerful and fabulous
Join artist Honey Williams for a collage and conversation workshop, responding to themes of power, masculinity and identity. The session will guide you through collage techniques as you share thoughts, to create a uniquely expressive artwork.
Seed bomb making
Join artist Chiara Dellerba and make a selection of seed bombs to brighten our city empty green spaces with an explosion of wild flowers and colours. Using a combination of compost, flower seeds and clay we will create small ‘bombs’ to throw into patches of green, releasing pockets of seeds which will turn into a micro habitat for bees and insects!
Ready type made
Get your hands dirty with ink and ‘found’ objects, use them as stamps to create your unique letters, and contribute to a collective alphabet with graphic designer Saria Digregorio. Playing with ordinary things like Dada artists, you will discover the expressive power of scrap materials and hidden shapes of typography
