About

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

Listen as storyteller Fiona Alderton tells the tale behind a painting. Then get creative together and follow  artist Julia Deering as she 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 Artemisia Gentileschi's 'Self Portrait as Saint Catherine of Alexandria', and making a collaged folding storyteller.

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