It’s ‘full steam ahead’ to Felixstowe Museum on the Landguard Peninsula this June for a special fun-packed Art Workshop suitable for all the family.
‘Steam, Sail and Saxons’ on Sunday 5th June is one of a series of workshops run by artists involved with the Tidal Margins project – Karenza Jackson (painter/printmaker) and Jennifer Hall (printmaker/sculptor) www.tidalmargins.wordpress.com, and funded by Touching the Tide, a Heritage Lottery Fund Landscape Partnership Scheme www.touchingthetide.org.uk
The workshop at the Felixstowe Museum is based around the theme of ‘steam’ and highlights the exciting world of paddle steamers at Felixstowe, and their role in the community in
the 19th C. At the Museum, visitors can discover the ‘Paddle Steamer Room’ complete with its intricate ship models, historic photographs and fascinating artifacts – a great place to gain inspiration for the workshop.
On the 5th June, there will be two sessions for both children and adults where you can create drawings and paintings to take home with you. No experience required! Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Pam Cole, Felixstowe Museum volunteer said, “We are thrilled to be hosting this workshop from our friends at Touching the Tide. The event will be great fun for families, and a fabulous opportunity to discover more about the history of paddle steamers and their close links to the seaside town of Felixstowe. We expect the workshops to be very popular, so we advise you to book well in advance”.
Sessions run from 12.15pm until 2.15pm and 2.30pm until 4.30pm, and the cost is £3 per person for the session, which includes entry into Felixstowe Museum and all materials. Pre-booking is essential. Bookings are being taken on a first come first served basis.
