Shoe Box Show [6+)


[ Online Workshop )

This event has passed.


In this Zoom workshop we will be creating 3-5 miniature artworks to then be arranged in your very own shoe box gallery.

Inspired by the Masterpieces in Miniature exhibition, installation artist Katharyn Owen will lead you in this mixed media workshop that will show you how to turn recycled objects into your own versions of well-known works from our collection, including Jann Haworth’s Cowboy, Henri Matisse’s Dancer and Gavin Turk’s Dump.

Our online workshops will be delivered via Zoom. You will need an internet device with webcam in order to take part. Prior to the workshop please ensure you have registered for a free Zoom account here.

Your ticket includes an art materials pack that we will send to you in the post before the workshop, which will contain:

  • Paper
  • A small play figure
  • Templates and diagrams to help you create a shoe box if you need to.

You will also need to provide:

  • A shoe box
