Friday 21 June 2-4pm

In association with the exhibition, ‘Dear Christine’, a tribute to Christine Keeler, curated by Fionn Wilson, Sadie Hennessy is hosting a workshop open to anyone over the age of 14 who would like to create a small piece of take-home art celebrating iconic women. After a brief introduction to the medium of collage, Hennessy will invite participants to make a commemorative plate featuring the great women that the participants have nominated.

The plates will be made using a simple decal transfer technique. The style of the plates will follow a long tradition of Royal commemorative ware, but with a very modern twist! There will also be the chance to create paper collage greetings cards. All materials will be provided.

When signing up for the workshop, please suggest women that you would like to commemorate. Places are limited to 15, so book early to avoid disappointment. Please contact the gallery to book a place at or 0191 261 8281.

Sadie Hennessy is a collage artist and printmaker. She is currently Screen Print Fellow at the Royal Academy.
