Erewash Museum will host a celebration of the arts event offering a whole range of free family activities and workshops on Saturday 1 October between 11am and 3pm.
Professional artists from Erewash will run workshops that will include drumming and writing, storytelling and drawing with a science and technology theme for this year’s Big Draw event.
The event will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Erewash Borough Council’s arts development service and an exhibition will showcase the team’s work over the last decade.
It will also mark the official opening of artist Anna Roebuck’s installation ‘Flowers of Remembrance’ in the museum’s War Gallery, which will run until Remembrance Day in November.
Anna has used recycled materials to depict flowers of remembrance from different nations and visitors can make and add their own flowers to the installation.
Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:
“Join us to celebrate our work with arts development in Erewash and enjoy a packed programme of free activities for all the family.”
Erewash Museum is in Ilkeston town centre, a short walk from the Market Place. Opening hours are Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am-4pm, and Monday to Saturday during school holidays.
