Circles of Life: The Stories We Tell

Children will work with exhibiting artist Ashley Perry and be inspired by his artwork in standing still; looking back, looking forward to make a paper mosaic or collage that represents stories about their own lives and family.

Ceramic Messages to the Future

Guided by artist Sachiko Mardon and inspired by the exhibition Calligraphic Media, children will re-imagine a communication device from the past and consider ways to communicate a new message in clay. Fired in the Incinerator Gallery kilns these messages may last well into the future. Be ready to get creative and perhaps a little messy.

Story Walls

Inspired by Rushdi Anwar’s artwork The Notion of Place and Displacement on display at the Incinerator Gallery, children will work with a Barking Spider Visual Theatre artist to design panels that go toward the making of a shared tent or cubby. Children invent stories and consider what is important to them in their lives today to represent on their part of the hut.

Friday, 6 July

• 10.30am to 12pm for 4 to 7 year olds (with an adult carer, free)
• 1pm to 3pm for 7 to 14 year olds (parents must complete an enrolment form when leaving their child)
