Inspired by the shadow boxes of Joseph Cornell, this cut-and-paste workshop gives primary school age children an opportunity to get creative and make their very own collage boxes to take home and display for Christmas.


Collage materials will be provided, if children would like to incorporate specific items or images into their collage box they are welcome to bring them along.
The workshop will include:

- Introductory projections of Joseph Cornell’s boxes and Advent Calendars

- Devising the ‘Scene’ or ‘Stage Set’ for the children’s own Christmas Stories

- Background box work, composition and cut and paste

- Mini gallery display of finished box compositions

Suitable for 5 - 11 year olds.
