Upcycled Children’s Art Workshop

June 6 @ 7:00 pm 9:30 pm

Is your house full to the brim with scribblings, drawings, stories and diagrams as your child (or grandchild) empties their mind onto page after page, which eventually make their way into overflowing heaps on the side in the kitchen?

Over the course of two evenings, join artist Megan Dowsett to transform their work into highly personal notebooks that both celebrate and re-use their, often prolific, creative output.

“I remember my son doing this picture. I thought, what am I going to do with that … and here we are! I’m so glad I kept it!” Louise

Bring a whole bunch (as much as you can carry!) of your child’s (or grand child’s) drawing, writing and scribbling – the good, the bad, the ugly – all of it! We’ll re-shape, re-purpose and re-imagine it into a lovely notebook that serves as a memoir for a time that has gone before you know it.

This workshop takes place partly outside – please dress appropriately for the weather time of day, and sturdy footwear for a short walk during a pause. You’re welcome to bring a picnic dinner each week.

A visual artist based in Exeter, Megan works with a variety of media, exploring connection with people, place and nature. Her work often takes the form of a book – sometimes in quite a traditional format and at other times, something more experimental and ephemeral.

Please let us know your access requirements when you book your ticket.
