Creative Fun for all ages, free to join in to create ‘Perth in Pictures’ – Banner Design Workshops
From the 1st April this year, the region’s libraries, museums and art galleries became part of Culture Perth and Kinross, a new charity delivering culture services across Perth and Kinross.
To celebrate this exciting new step, Culture Perth and Kinross would like you to join them in creating art work that will be made into eye-catching banners for display outside Perth Museum and Art Gallery and A K Bell Library.
Families are invited to get crafty with paper to create imaginative collages and pictures with local design studio Fun Makes Good. No art experience is required, just a vivid imagination and an enthusiasm to make. You will be taking inspiration from items from the Museum collections, paintings on the walls, Archives, photography, poetry from the Library or even your favourite book!
Perth in Pictures family banner design workshops are taking place at Perth Museum and Art Gallery on Saturday 30th April 10am-1pm and at the A K Bell Library on Saturday 14th May 9.30am-12.30pm.
For people living in the Tulloch area, a workshop has been arranged to design flags to celebrate and decorate the streets of Tulloch. Tulloch in Pictures takes place on Saturday 7th May 10am-1pm at Tulloch Community Centre.
All three workshops are free and are suitable for children (5+) and adults alike! Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
Workshop Leader Eleanor Young from Fun Makes Good said, “This is a really exciting opportunity to help make art work that will celebrate and ultimately decorate wonderful cultural venues across Perth and Kinross. By the end of the sessions we will have lots of bright, playful pictures ready to be transformed into eye-catching banners.”
Spaces are limited so booking is recommended. To book your free place online visit Eventbrite to register or telephone 01738 632 488.
