Stories of our Lives

Type of Event: Multi Art Workshop

(English) On Wednesdays throughout May, Narberth Museum will be hosting a series of social and creative workshops for the over 50s

Inspired by traditional Welsh quilts, each workshop will add to an eclectic mix of 'patches' that reflect the rich patchwork of experiences our community has to offer.

Week 1 - Cyanotypes 'Sun-printing' workshop with Linda Norris using keepsakes or small objects from the museum collection

Week 2 - Fabric painting workshop reflecting 'Memories of my Grandmother' through colour, shape and line

Week 3 - Creative stitching with Carolyn Young, drawing inspiration from Welsh samplers with a modern twist

Week 4 - Natural dyeing with artist Sian Lester using local plants and traditional techniques

Week 5 - The Big Stitch! A social opportunity to help stitch the quilt together under the guidance of local experts.

Come along to all, some or one of the workshops; make friends and leave a legacy while learning new skills.
