Craft Residency at Time and Tide Museum, Great Yarmouth
Creative Collisions worked with Norfolk Museums and Norfolk Arts and Library Services
Funded by Heritage Lottery Young Roots Programme.
Young People working with Creative Collisions in Great Yarmouth expressed a desire to learn craft skills that have contributed to the heritage of Great Yarmouth and which they felt had the potential to inspire and engage their age group. Through master classes, workshops and CPD for teachers a series of carved oak panels were created for permanent display at Time and Tide Museum. 'Silver Darlings' carved oak panels were inspired by the museum collections and the history of the fishing industry in Great Yarmouth.
Young people from local schools and their teachers took part in craft skills workshops, they created their own small plaques to take home before working on large scale oak panels, sited in the museum courtyard.
