Do you like to get creative at home? Whether that’s making cartoons, furniture, pottery, prints, fabrics, or clothes? Then we have the group for you!
‘The Crafty Corner’ is a space where you will get to explore, experiment, and express your creative side. Every workshop we will explore a story from the museum’s collection about a trade or craft and create an artistic response to its themes, craft process or medium. There will be opportunities in some sessions to learn from visiting artists and work together as a group to create some amazing crafts – from woodwork to fabrics.
2024 marks the 150th anniversary of our synagogue and as part of the celebrations we will be creating a time capsule to commemorate the stories of our local community and the people who are part of our museum.
This session we will be continuing with our time capsule project! We would love to work with you to create a collaborative textile patchwork piece to go into our time capsule, that expresses the places and things you love about our museum and the local area.
Don’t worry if you didn’t attend last month’s session, anyone can come along and start their patchwork creation. So join us to get in touch with your creative side as we get crafty with fabric through painting, drawing, sewing and collage.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
This group is open to anyone over the age of 18, and to all identities, backgrounds, and cultures. Don’t worry if this is your first-time making crafts, we welcome beginners and seasoned pros – and believe in the power of supporting one another in getting creative!
The workshop is 1 hour and 30 minutes long and there will be refreshments provided.
All materials are included as part of the workshop but do feel free to bring any creations you are working on to share with the group. We’d love to see!
