Make (it) Yourself

Children's workshop (age 5-11) 10.30am - 11.30am

Kids were invited to creatively explore their own character and personality using words and art together! Throughout the workshop children will construct their own “book about me”, drawing inspiration from poetry, books, and image, experimenting with colour, collage, drawing and painting!

Make (it) Yourself

Young Person's Workshop (age 12-16) 12pm - 1pm

Progressing from the previous session, young people will explore their identities through words and images. They will develop their own creative autobiographies using words, drawing, painting, collage and more!

Make (it) Yourself
