About

Story studio brings the family fun of our Gallery storytelling sessions and making workshops to you in the comfort of your own home.

Listen in as storyteller Fiona Alderton tells the tale behind a painting. Then get creative together and follow along as artist Marc Woodhead shows us how to create a story-inspired artwork. Help to finish the tale with your imagination and share what you’ve created.

This week we’ll be exploring a follower of Giorgione's 'Homage to a Poet' and making pop-up drawings.

The session will take place online, via Zoom, and will last about an hour.
