Join artist Lily Ash Sakula for Family Visions, our free family sessions exploring what makes a family and the many different types of families. Through interconnected workshops adults and children are invited to explore who and what makes your family; from human and non-human members, rituals, food, and the spaces we inhabit and create together.

Taking inspiration from our current exhibitions, these sessions will celebrate the shapes and sizes of all families using play, drawing and animation techniques, working towards a Family Visions animation.

Family Takeover is a fortnightly session on Sunday afternoons and offers a fun, creative and relaxed space to explore playing and making with materials.

Saturday 1st October: Gather Round – Autumn open day

Drop-in for a taster of our Family Takeover programme, including light-based activities, culminating in performances using light and shadow through the afternoon.

Sunday 16th October: Constellations

Who makes your family? Human and non-human included! During this session we will draw and build the constellations that make up our families and connect us to each other as mobiles.

Sunday 30th October: Ritual

What holds a family together? In this session we will explore the rituals, traditions, memories and foods that make our families ours using claymation.

Sunday 13th November: Space

Families shape and are shaped by the spaces around them. What would your ideal family space look like? In this session we will build utopian dens - structures that provide us with both safety and joy.

Sunday 27th November: Home Movies

How do we document our families? What do we want to show the world? And what is just for us? In this session we will be creating a record of our families through zine making.

Sunday 11th December: And it all unravels…

A family doesn't fit into a neat box and that’s part of the joy of it, it is chaotic and constantly shape shifting, full of silliness that doesn’t make sense to anyone else! In this session we will be letting that chaos loose as we dress up and make a large scale animation using our bodies through pixelation.
