Over the course of two years, artists will lead school pupils and care home residents in an exploration of artefacts and stories found in Lowestoft Museum and the Maritime Museum, including quilts, porcelain and paintings, dolls houses, scale model boats, ship figureheads and sea shanties.
Through 12 weekly creative workshops, the intergenerational pairings will share their memories and experience of local folk traditions with each other and create contemporary folk art, to be added to the Museums’ existing collections.
This summer, Suffolk Artlink will be holding family storytelling events and workshops as part of the Lowestoft Festival and Heritage Open Days, as well as running touring exhibitions of the work created by participants.
