Tiny Manyings for Riddley – A Family Art Making Day
A fun day for families working with humanities researcher Dr Paul March-Russell and eco artist Julieann Worrall Hood to plan and model an organic monument inspired by the new world created 40 years ago by Russell Hoban in Riddley Walker, set in the landscapes of East Kent.
Explore history, myth and the making of meaning in a world where we are all more aware of our surroundings and the way in which we depend on each other. Working in new ways, we’ll create a proposal for a new addition to our landscape.
The fully accessible and socially distanced workshop, with families working in their own area will apply the concepts, methods, and materials of Riddley Walker to a fun workshop creating maquettes for a proposed ‘Riddley Walker monument’ to be placed or grown in the East Kent landscape. Warm-up activities, individual and group making activities, a simple picnic lunch will be followed by a display and photographing of the maquettes for sharing in an online project gallery. Some activity may take place outside (weather-dependent).
The event is free, but booking is essential as numbers are limited.
