Shire Hall Gallery Workshop- Beings of the Backyard


http://www.staffordshire.gov.uk/leisure/museumandgalleries/shirehallgalleries/home.aspx

"What's nestling in the sock drawer? Who's nibbling your biscuits? Where did your keys go? Work with Claire and Amy of Particle Article to discover the mischievous and magical creatures inhabiting forgotten spaces. Use recycled and found materials and creative writing to bring them to life. (Bring along a tiny treasure or sparking idea!)

On Saturday 15th October we will be doing a workshop at the Shire Hall Gallery in Stafford from 10-4. See the gallery website for more details.

BIRMINGHAM CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL SUMMER ‘GALLERY’ PROJECT



Here are some pictures from our workshops at Birmingham Children's Hospital. The Gallery Project is aimed at young people aged 11-18 years who have spent long periods of time in hospital. The project aims to provide young people with a fun and exciting opportunity to work with professional artists, learn new skills, develop their personal life skills (such as using public transport, communication etc) and engage in social activities where they can meet other young people who have similar experiences to their own.

Creepy Crawlies



Here are the magical creepy crawlies created during the summer workshop by children at Bilston craft gallery with Claire.
