Families of all ages are invited to join us to explore our exhibitions through making activities, creative exercises and personal responses.
This workshop for all ages will explore our current exhibition Inscriptions of an Immense Theatre by Ailbhe Ní Bhriain. Through group exercises, we will question the meaning of a museum and what we choose to collect. Together we will dream up new hybrid objects to keep under museum glass. Using drawing, collage and 3D modeling to bring these strange new things to life, we will then figure out the histories behind these things - why are these the things in our museum and not something else? What stories do they tell?
