Get creative in these free and family friendly craft sessions inspired by the iconic Miners’ Banners on display at Woodhorn Museum. Help us create a giant ‘deconstructed’ paper banner inspired by nature.
‘Banner and Branches’ invites you to create part of a Miners’ Banner using simple paper art techniques. You could choose a scroll, a circular emblem or decorative foliage. Add your own words, drawings or decorations to your paper art to share what is important to you about your environment.
Help us fill the gallery with your creative contributions and don’t forget to take your picture in a beautiful 3-D paper banner sculpture created by artist Bethan Maddocks!
A member of our friendly Customer Host team will be on hand to help.
This is a free activity is included in your Annual Pass admission where kids go free.
Banner and Branches is by artist Bethan Maddocks and has been made possible by funding from Arts Council England and Northumberland County Council.
