SUNDERLAND MUSEUM AND WINTER GARDENS, SUNDERLAND

I have been commissioned to design, plan and deliver the following art workshops for Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens with great success to date:

28/10/2011: Designed and delivered the family drop-in The Big Draw! event at Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens: Faerie Fantasy World! 11am-3:30pm. To coincide with The Truth About Faeries exhibition.

[See the section: The Big Draw! for details and gallery!]

29/07/2011: "Discover Your Inner Faerie: Make Your Own Life-Size Faerie/Elf" drop-in family-friendly art workshop to coincide with The Truth About Faeries exhibition at Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens as part of their annual Teddy Bears Picnic event at Mowbray Park. Sunderland, 12pm-2pm. Also to celebrate I Love Parks Week. The event attracted approx. 150 participants. - A very busy but brilliant afternoon! There were lots of other activities to do on the day too including a mini beast hunt, dancing, songs etc.

My workshop gave young children and their families the opportunity to get creative and make their own big drawings to contribute towards a big installation at the park. The finished hand-drawn life-size Faeries were either taken home by the participants or they were used as part of the final installation: a fantastical Faerie ring around the bandstand! Additional Faeries were also attached in the trees to surprise the locals!

Me and my life-size Faerie!
