Hidden Histories – Story Making with Objects at Hebburn Central & Jarrow Focus
Free, booking required
Suitable for children and families and all ages
**This activity takes place at Jarrow Focus and Hebburn Central libraries**
Get creative with artist Alizon Bennet during February half term!
You will be given a beautifully designed net for a brick shaped box, that can be cut out, assembled and decorated to house a description/drawing of an object that is precious to you. Inspired by her residency at Jarrow Hall, Alizon Bennet’s workshop encourages you to engage in conversation about the importance of objects, and their memories and stories.
The completed brick boxes will be assembled to make small temporary constructions. Alizon will photograph these constructions at the end of the workshops and the completed boxes will be a keepsake for you to take away.
The activity takes place on the following dates/times:
- Monday 20 February, 10-11.30am at Jarrow Focus
- Tuesday 21 February, 2-3.30pm at Hebburn Central– SOLD OUT
