“Island Women: Creativity in Isolation” – Hedon Museum

AN EXHIBITION of work at Hedon Museum by a group of artists and craft makers from Sunk Island.

Based on their experience of ‘lockdown’ during the coronavirus pandemic, the theme will be ‘creativity in isolation: individual interpretations of change’.

Katy Miller from the Museum said: “In this pre-planned, but rescheduled exhibition, The Sunk Island Women have decided on a relevant change of theme, to show us what they have made during the Covid-19 lockdown. It’s been an interesting year, to say the least, and many have turned to learning and crafting to occupy their time. Here is a chance to be inspired by new ideas and recycled materials.

“A specific focus of the group is using recycled materials and local products, a wonderful idea to use unique objects for unique creations while helping the environment. Many pieces will be for sale so this will be a great opportunity to buy early Christmas presents!

“Hedon Museum is a safe environment to enjoy history, crafts and art. We can’t wait to welcome you!”

The exhibition will take place from Wednesday 14th October until Wednesday 25th November 2020. It will be open on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10am to 4pm. Artists will also be available for some exhibition dates to meet and talk to visitors. FREE ADMISSION.

The Museum has a permanent exhibition downstairs and regularly changing exhibitions upstairs. There is a modern stairlift to reach the exhibition room. The museum has a ‘Photo Album Corner’ where you can sit and look through photos of people and places in the area – and you might be able to help us identify some of these.

When in Hedon on a museum open day on Wednesday and Saturday, look out for the signs and noticeboards around town guiding you to the entrance via Watmough’s Arcade.

Free Admission. Wednesdays and Saturdays, 10am – 4pm. Pre-loved books for sale.
