Art as a Second Language at Weston Park Museum

Thank you to everyone who came down to Art as a Second Language at Weston Park Museum on Thursday. We all had a fascinating time at the Museum and enjoyed studying the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Doll Houses Collection which gave us insight in to British social history. We then set off to the North Pole and met Snowy the Polar Bear.


Week 2 of Stool Making

We finished our stools today. Take a look at our progress below and on our Facebook page here. If you’d like to get involved in a future workshop send us an email:

Woodwork Stool Making Workshop

Today we went on a trip to Sharrow Forum to have a go at building stools. We all had a good time and enjoyed the first session with everyone successfully putting their stool together. Next week we are going to complete our stools and decorate them! Below are a few photos and there are more on our Facebook page here.

Door to Doc – Doc Fest 2016

On Friday 10th June students from Learn for Life were invited to visit the opening of Doc Fest in Sheffield as part of the “Door to Doc” project. We were picked up by coach and taken to the Showroom cinema where we were given complimentary gift bags and saw the documentary, “Kedi”. The documentary explored the journeys of street cats and the people in Istanbul. After the documentary we were given a tour around the Alternative Realities Exhibition at the Millennium Galleries and the Virtual Reality Arcade at the Site Gallery which were very futuristic and hands-on. We got to speak to a holocaust survivor and got to walk around Mars. There are more photos available on our Facebook page.
