Join our free drop in workshops and gallery tours open to all, with or without kids to celebrate the archive exhibition launch weekend. You can:
Create photographic sun prints with Dave Green around Victoria Park: learn how sunlight and time affects photographic paper, then return to watch your image appear as Dave fixes your print with chemical magic. Drop in any time between 11-4pm.
Collect a free Poetry Passport from poetologist Chris Jelley. He will be distributing these in Victoria Park between 11-4pm and can tell you more about the project, stamping stations, workshops, and how to get started on your ‘Peddling Poetry’ journey this Spring-Summer. He will teach you how to hunt for poems and stamp your passport along the Tarka Trail using https://tarkatrail.poetrypin.info
Make your own collage and craft artwork to tell an archive story by using photographs from the Beaford collection. Combining this with your own painting / drawing and text you will create a keep-sake memory of the exhibition. Drop in any time between 11-4pm.
Experience a 20 minute gallery tour of the exhibition to learn more about the Beaford archive with members of the curatorial and project team. The tours will run at 11am, 12pm, 1pm and 3pm.
