Workshop: Crochet a wire vessel

22nd September 2019

£50.00

Connect with items in the museum and share stories while learning to crochet with wire with sculptors Clee Claire Lee and Gillian Brent.

Participants will be shown how to crochet with wire, and will have the opportunity to make a sculptural vessel to take away to place in their homes, hang in their gardens or use as a container, maybe for a treasured object.

Participants will have free entry to the Museum and time to find about something they particularly connect with in the displays or artworks. While crocheting our sculptures, we will also weave a narrative together about the stories and objects people have chosen.

The workshop Please meet at reception at 11 am.
There is a cafe on site but feel free to bring your own refreshments.

The wire can be slightly dirty, so please wear appropriate clothing. All materials and tools are provided.
