Junction Arts are delighted that the Exhibition of the work produced from the participants of the Combine: Farming Heritage | East Midlands project has now started its 18 month touring programme.
Over the last year young people have visited farms, museums, and archives to research and record the rich and distinct farming history of six regions of the East Midlands. They have taken part in traditional heritage skills and worked with an artist to create a contemporary map of their area. The research is being shared with local communities and the wider public in a number of ways including the project publication, the Combine project website and this touring exhibition. This October half term Jane Wells Project Coordinator delivered a creative workshop in the Rutland County Museum which is the first venue to host the exhibition and the complimentary workshop proved to be very popular throughout the day with children and young people. Participants could decorate a paper bag using one of two techniques; either making tissue paper mosaic animals or by ‘magic drawing’ farm related images.
The exhibition can be seen at the museum until Monday 12th November. Rutland County Museum Opening Times :Mon, Wed, Fri & Sat : 10.00 – 4.00
