Craft and textiles in a day

Are you aged 13-19 and interested in crafts and textiles?

This half-term, go on a virtual exploration of Bristol Museum & Art Gallery to investigate the historic and mysterious boxes that are stored behind the scenes.

Discover what incredible (but real!) wildlife is hidden within, then get creative in response to what you have seen and experiment with new textiles techniques. You will learn how to make fabric insects and feathers, collect natural treasures and decorate your own nature box.

How to take part

This is a free course for 13-19 year olds in the Bristol area.

On the first session you will need to log into Zoom so we can introduce the project and go through a ‘how to’ guide of what to do. Everyone can then work at their own pace over the next couple of days and on the second session we will all log on again to see what everyone has done. We’ll give you ideas of how to take it further as well as let you know what else you can get involved with. 

First session:
Wednesday 28 October, 3pm – 4pm

Second session:
Friday 30 October, 3pm – 4pm.

As this is an online course we will give you as much support as we can over Zoom but it’s important that you are happy and able to do some of the work on your own at home.

You will need to be able to access Zoom via a computer/tablet/mobile phone. If needed we will help you get set up with this before the course starts.

We will also check what materials you have at home. If there is anything else you need we will send it out to you so you can take part in the project.

Please book your place below. Details of how to join the workshops will be emailed to you nearer the time. If you would like more information, please email [email protected]. If tickets have sold out, please email Suzi to be added to the waiting list.

Bookings close on Tuesday 27 October.

These workshops are delivered in partnership with Creative Youth Network. The next creative workshops for young people will take place in February half term.
