Grayson Perry - Family Day

Saturday, November 23rd 2019 12:00pm
Shetland Museum and Archives

The main theme of the Grayson Perry A Potted Biography exhibition is life stories. The motifs on the two pots tell the story of the artist’s character, and what shaped him as a person.

The other part of the exhibition, My Potted Biography reveals how everyday objects belonging to local people can tell stories about their owner - sometimes funny, sometimes sad.

Come along to the museum and take part in a variety of events and workshops exploring biography. There’s something for all the family including:

  • Children’s activities – 12.00pm–4.00pm

Drop-in Craft Activities

Make and decorate a small airdrying clay pot to take home

Help decorate a large ceramic pot using collage, stickers and stamps

  • All the family – 12.00pm-4.00pm

Show and Tell

Take along an item which has a story to tell about you. Do you have an object with a story to tell? What does it mean to you or what does it say about your life? We’d love to see your objects and discover your stories

  • Adults (16+) – 2.00pm-4.00pm (booking essential)

Creative writing workshop

Bring along an item that means something special to you and join archivist Mark Smith to create a piece of writing or poetry about your object. No previous writing experience necessary
