Grand designs

Erewash Museum’s arts development team will be hosting a free BBC Get Creative event this Saturday (8th April).
 
Young craft fans can drop in any time between 11am and 3pm to create their very own Victorian inspired cardboard doll’s house using templates. They can then wander around the museum and its grounds to different activity stations to add in a kitchen, parlour and to decorate their very own grand design.
 
Storyteller Patrick Ashcroft will be at the event throughout the day telling Rumer Godden’s tale ‘The Dolls House’, a heart-warming story filled with imagination and creativity.
 
BBC Get Creative is a campaign run by a group of cultural organisations to celebrate and support the everyday creativity happening in homes and public spaces. It aims to inspire people to try something new at home or at a Get Creative event and to encourage people to share their own examples of everyday creativity.
