Family Festival of Museum sessions to complement the Robert Callender: Plastic Beach
… poetry of the everyday exhibition. This fun, interactive workshop by artist and beachcomber Katie Fowlie of Scottish Beach Finds will encourage participants to create pigments and explore mark-making using ingredients foraged from along the natural coastal landscape. Participants will also make their own brushes from materials such as driftwood and wild grasses, and combine these in a playful manner with their pigments made from organic raw materials. This engaging workshop will prompt reflection and learning about how to use nature creatively - celebrating the richness of coastal landscapes and the immersive quality of living by the sea that characterised Robert Callender’s work. Suitable for families and children 5+. Free, drop in, no need to book.
