Event description

Description

We will design and build a miniature installation in the library, of a future Edinburgh city centre inspired by the “grandfather of town planning”, Patrick Geddes.

This year Edinburgh Art Festival’s Explorers families programme comes to Central Library for weekly creative art making sessions suitable for ages 8-13. Inspired by the EAF artist commissions programme and the ‘Making of the Future’ theme join us weekly or drop in for a one off to creatively reimagine your city.

Each session will look at a different artist and include 2D and 3D arts activities such as building a miniature bothy inspired by artist Bobby Niven, designing your own modernist city after artist Toby Paterson and creating inflatable giant flower sculptures inspired by artist duo Walker and Bromwich.

In celebration of the children’s work the outcomes of each workshop will be exhibited in the Children’s Library for the last week of the festival, 21-27 August.
