Description

Workshop 2: For kids 5 - 15 years (please respond on behalf of your child!)

Activity 1 - Mapping
This activity uses large simplified Maps of the area and is a little warm up session designed to get everyone thinking about were they live, were there school is, favourite places to go. It will also be a chance to share some stories about the local area.

Activity 2 - Shaping Stories
This activity is inspired by the stories collected from the adult workshop on the 14th. We will lay a large roll of paper on the floor asking all the group to sit around it. Read out various stories that have been collected in the previous workshop as well as stories we have found when researching the areas history, we will then ask the children to paint shapes or symbols that represent elements from the stories being told. After each short story is told we will ask the children to shift places to the right so they are drawing in another person's place, this will continue until they have each sat in each place.

Once we’ve created the series of different shapes on the paper, we will ask the children to explore the drawings picking out shapes that they like and that remind them other own memories and experiences. We will then choose some of our favourite shapes and start trying to compose them together on a large sheet of paper all together.

This workshop will take just under 2 hours and will run twice on Saturday 28th April, Once in the morning 11am - 1pm and then in the afternoon at 2 - 4pm. Refreshments and snacks will be available in each session.
