What to expect:

This workshop is taking place in the New Curtois Gallery at Lincoln Museum. This is the main temporary gallery space accessible by ramps via the Main entrance and Orientation hall. To find the New Curtois Gallery, enter the museum and walk forwards through the Gift Shop, turn left when you are in the Orientation Hall and walk towards the tall window. The New Curtois Gallery is accessible through the last large automatic doors on the right.

This session will run from 10.30 - 15.30. This will include a lunch break for which you are invited to bring a packed lunch to eat together as a group. You are welcome to take breaks as your require them.

In this workshop you will be using paper and pens. Be ready to use your imagination!

You will make a collective world map. You can take elements of it home with you.

This session is Intermediate level. Some experience of working with others is important, if not at least a willingness to be part of a group activity.

This may be challenging if you have difficulty with visualising or using your imagination. People will be talking out loud so it may be noisy, to help you with this we have noise cancelling head phones and fidget toys available. 

Here at Lincoln Museum and Usher Gallery, we welcome all participants; if you still aren’t sure whether this workshop is accessible for you or someone you care for, please email us at lincolnmuseum@lincolnshire.gov.uk and we can discuss your access requirements.
