We spoke to Imogen, our Learning and Engagement Assistant, about what they got up to at the latest Studio Sunday.
Studio Sunday is a free, drop in workshop for families of all ages in our Clore Learning Studio. Every fortnight during exhibitions, an artist leads families in a range of things to make and do, inspired by the Kettle’s Yard House and collection. The sessions are drop-in, and run from 12 – 4pm. Studio Sunday is free, although we welcome donations to cover the cost of materials.
Last week our learning studio was transformed as families created a collective world inspired by the new exhibition Homelands: Art from Bangladesh, India and Pakistan.
Artist Josh Bilton supported families to respond to work and themes in the exhibition by contributing to a collective floor installation exploring borders, territory and home.
Nearly 150 people took part over the course of an afternoon, with families working together to create an incredible network of homes, towns and paths between them.
One participant said:
“The session was busy but never too busy – perfect! It had the feeling of just lots of young people stretching their imaginations and you had all the right materials available to help fire their enthusiasm. The volunteer you had for the session was also wonderful – just very kind, and in the right place to help a busy four year old with her tape cutting, at the right moments! Just wonderful.”
