Make in the Museum
We will host from 23 – 27 July 2018 the second of our summer workshops inspired by the main and temporary exhibitions titled 'Make in the Museum' .
Children will take part in an exciting, creative exploration of the Museum’s unique artefacts through the medium of drawing, sculpture/installation and glass.
Each participant will choose an object on display in the galleries that interests them, and through the processes of photography, drawing, 2D sculpture, 3D sculpture, glass design and glass painting they will recreate that object using a variety of techniques.
At the end of the week they will have created a series of distinct objects reflecting the history of Newry and Mourne.
Each day’s activity will lead on to the next day’s event, so participants are encouraged to stay for all five days.
The workshops will take place from 10.30am – 1pm and will cost £15 per child for the week. Numbers are limited and the sessions planned are suitable for children aged 7 - 12.
Parents are encouraged to stay, but it is not essential. Children must be dressed for mess. If you intend to leave your child you will have to fill a registration form and return it to the Museum.
If you wish to book or you require more information, please telephone 028 3031 3178.
