Heritage Open Day - Community Art Activities

Sunday 16 September 2018

10am to 4pm

The West Norfolk Artist Association in partnership with King's Lynn Festival have put together a wonderful range of art activities to celebrate Heritage Day; including drop-in creative sessions, workshops, demonstrations, and a heritage treasure trail for all.

The following events will be running throughout the day: 

  • Heritage Photo Treasure Trail with Cynthia Jackson, Artist: Start your trail at the Shakespeare Barn where you will be given a set of instructions of where to go on the trail. You will need a camera or mobile phone to take photos at some of the Heritage Open Day sites. Once completed, return to the Shakespeare Barn and select your favourite image to add to the Heritage Day Banner - see below. 
  • Heritage Banner - PVA Photo Printing with Esther Boehm, Sculptor: Bring along a photo or selfie, on your camera or phone, taken at one of the Heritage Open Day Sites. We will then print the image and you can then help create a cultural collage by using PVA glue to superimpose your picture on to a Heritage Day Banner. 
  • Restoring Photographs Using Digital Software with Jo Halpin-Jones, Photographer: Insights into Photoshop - see how software can change and enhance photography. Do you have a photo that needs to be restored? Send it to louise@kingslynnfestival.org.uk before September and your entry could be selected by Jo. If your photo is chosen, you will recieve a print-out of the restored photograph. 
  • Painting on Silk - Demonstration by Helena Anderson, Artist & Painter: A rare opportunity to see this exquisite form of painting using silk as the medium.
  • Magical Morphing Plasticine Sculpture with  Tom Sharp, Sculptor: Apply your modeling skills and join in to help build a Heritage Day sculpture using playful, pliable plasticine. 
  • Painting after a Stroke - Demonstration workshop by Maxine Byron, Fine Artist: Maxine will be working with a small number of stroke patients who already benefit from art and especially painting & drawing as an aid to recovery. Prepare to be amazed by the quality of work this group can produce. This demonstration workshop is supported by Gemma Smith, Stroke Association Support Coordinator. 

All events are FREE OF CHARGE and will be taking place in the St George's Guildhall Galleries. 

'Make a Mosaic' with John & Helen Walker and 'Handmade Prints Without a Press' with Kit Price Moss are also events that will take place on this date in the Gallery spaces, however, these events will be ticketed.
