Family Connections: Material Memories Drawing and Light Workshop

09 March 2019, 3pm - 4pm

Further Information

Families of all ages are invited to join us to explore our exhibitions through making activities, creative exercises and personal responses.

Is your head chock-a-block with memories? From the big things like your first day at school, to the little things like what you had for breakfast this morning, there are so many memories crammed into everyone’s mind, some hazy and some moments stay crystal clear.

In this workshop for all ages we will explore TBG+S's current exhibition Efference Copy Mechanism by Ronan McCrea. We will draw out our memories on plastic and project them large-scale onto the gallery walls. Using coloured-lighting gels and moving elements we will animate them and add to them, weaving different peoples memories together, looking at similar events from different angles.
