The Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture, located in the village of Berriew, near Welshpool, has put together crafting kits based on the museum’s popular workshops.
The kits contain everything needed to make an Andrew Logan inspired work of art, including full instructions and the all-important glitter! They may be ordered from the ‘Events’ section of the museum’s website - andrewloganmuseum.org/events - or by calling either 01686 640689 or 07907 767 839. A kit costs £6.50, plus £3.99 postage and packing.
Andrew will be choosing his favourite creations from photographs sent to the museum, with an annual museum family pass the top prize and goodies for the runners up.
“We are delighted to be able to offer an activity for everyone at home, and especially something physical,” said Anne-Marie Pope, museum manager. “All the packs have been put together under risk assessed safe methods.
“If you’re looking for an activity for the whole family, you can order your Half-Term Home Heroes crafting kit now.”
Other museums across Wales are preparing online workshops, talks and activities, broadcast to homes. ‘Museum at Home’ will be one of this year’s key festival themes.
As well as bringing museum content to homes, the festival will also be helping people to explore their home as a museum. There will be plenty of fun activities to help make half term as interesting and exciting as possible.
Funded by Welsh Government, the festival is an annual event presented by the Federation of Museums and Art Galleries of Wales, the strategic body for museums and galleries and those working in the sector.
The federation represents more than 100 unique, accredited Welsh museums which are a treasured resource for learning, exploration and knowledge about local and national identity, and how people have lived here in Wales since the dawn of time.
The festival is a blend of physical and online events for all ages and many are free. Full details are available on the festival website: www.museums.wales
