Moulding Memories - Our Biennale Festival (FULLY BOOKED)

Capturing feelings about the world we live in now - Suitable for primary and secondary schools

Imagine one huge sculpture that captures the thoughts and feelings of children from across Kirklees as a lasting monument of this time.

Through creative writing, drawing and collage, this project supports pupils to tell their stories and explore their feelings about Covid-19.

Their creative work will be pulped and created into blocks using moulds. These 'memory blocks' will then become part of a large sculpture encompassing blocks from every participating school that will be exhibited in spring 2021.

Gathering together the experiences of children in Kirklees, Moulding Memories will be a cathartic release that will help with well-being and recovery.

Through a pre-recorded 'how to' video, Lucie will support your children to express their thoughts and experiences. There will be a step by step guide to inspire and offer technical support when making the memory blocks and we offer a CPD session for teachers.

Your school will receive all the art materials needed, including the moulds. Several classes can be involved and even the whole school!

Artist: Lucie MacGregor

Poet: Toria Garbutt

Illustrator: Ruth Dyer

Our Biennale artists from all over Kirklees are here to help support pupil well-being for just £200 per school. All projects will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Schools and artists can work together to arrange workshop dates.
