[ Children )Buy Tickets >
Explore Greece through John Craxton’s art and be inspired to create your own zine.
During this immersive workshop you’ll discover the magic of zines and unlock your artistic potential!
Children will begin their journey with a visit to the John Craxton: A Modern Odyssey exhibition. There they will learn about Craxton’s drawing techniques and the way Greece inspired the settings, colours and tone of his art.
Back in our Studio, children will begin to craft their very own map of this unique exhibition experience through a zine. A zine is a mini magazine and together we will create one bursting with creativity! Kids will have the chance to blend printmaking, collage, and illustrations to make a piece that captures their own adventure through the exhibition. Each page will be a canvas to fill with their imagination, a blend of textures, colours, and stories waiting to be told.
Things to note
We advise that children wear comfortable clothes that you do not mind getting a bit dirty.
Please provide a packed lunch and drink for your child. There will be a lunch break during the workshop.
We will be taking photographs during the workshop, if you would prefer your child not to be photographed, just let us know.
Artist educator bio - Charlotte Cranidge
Charlotte specialises in creating conversational events, creative practical workshops and participatory projects. Within her work she aims to deliver programmes and events that focus storytelling, playfulness, inquisitiveness and experimentation – asking participants to engage in multiple processes to create their own works.
Presently she partners with cultural, heritage and clinical settings to develop resources and produce creative outcomes collaboratively with communities. Drawing inspiration from unique collections, exhibitions and artworks, Charlotte creates programmes that present an exciting, alternative way of learning, complementing the formal education system and engaging all ages.
As an artist Charlotte’s practice focuses more on the outcomes that emerge from basic materials, adopting non-conventional treatments of materials and aesthetic potential. However, the roots of her practice lie in painting and printmaking – specialisms she frequently returns too.
