Museum of Me Collage Workshop
This workshop will be of interest to people who would like to find a new and creative way to explore their family history and want to learn more about how encounters with objects can stimulate strong emotions and feelings. Artist Helena Tomlin has been working with the Centre for Jewish Studies at The University of Manchester to create a piece of work in response to two objects she has selected from the collection of objects at the John Rylands Library: an Esther scroll and a marriage contract, which form part of The 50 Jewish Objects. Helena aims to share in this workshop her methods of working which include text, collage and stitch to help participants create a small box artwork on the theme of The Museum of Me.
