We’re looking forward to delivering schools activities at Fabrica gallery as part of Heritage Open Days next week.
We’ll be making faux stained glass as a reference to the beautiful stained glass inside Fabrica gallery from its earlier incarnation as the Holy Trinity Church. We’ll then be linking this with the national curriculum and key stage 2 maths.
The first set of our activities at Fabrica will include:
- Discussion about stained glass and examples
- Workshop on making faux stained glass with children
- Differentiation activity with scratch relief stained glass effect
We’ll be delivering activities every year at the gallery between 2019 and 2021.
PAST: PRESENT: FUTURE is a project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, which is being undertaken by Fabrica Gallery and some of its volunteers. This project will bring to light previously unexplored history about the exhibition space, a restoration of some of the churches key original features and an amazing learning resource in the form of a book detailing the story of the Holy Trinity Church.
Fabrica have partnered with Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage to deliver a series of three years of Heritage Open Days activities. These open days will be taking place in September 2019, 2020 and 2021.
These take the form of creative schools workshops based on restoration of stained glass at Fabrica gallery – part of the Holy Trinity Church 200th building anniversary.
