Family Drop In Workshop: History, Mystery & Futures Foretold

Sat 04 Mar 2017
Free Drop-In
Meet in Seamens Hall
South Wing

Did you know our Courtyard has been a cinema, car park, catwalk and much much more? Ever counted the kings and queens that filled our palaces? Or have you seen the riverside arts and architecture shift & change?

Illustrator Sophia Ward leads an afternoon of imaginative exploration filled with unusual objects and illustrations. Using surprising facts about the former functions of our grand building for inspiration before crafting your own prominent predictions of what's to come.

Our family drop-in workshops are suitable for accompanied children 6 - 12 and are designed for families working together.

Sophia Ward Graduated from Kingston University London in Summer 2016 with a degree in Illustration Animation and is currently developing her work and the audiences she engages with. For this activity Sophia is adapting a project which uses abstract laser cut wooden shapes to spark memories initially designed for those with dementia and memory loss. The workshop has been reworked for a family audience for a playful look at history, memory and predicting the future.
