Make:Shift:Do at Shrimping It with Exchange CIC

Morecambe Minilluminations

@ShrimpingIt and Magenta Monocle invite you to the West Street Exchange Creative Community on October 27th and 28th to create your own Mini-illuminations on the theme of "Wellbeing".

Depict anything you like, inspired by one or more of the 5 ways to wellbeing;
Connect,
Keep Learning,
Be Active,
Take Notice,
Give

We will guide participants through the construction of a tableau, designing the line art, the bulb-layout, colour assignment and any computer-controlled animation wanted. Baffles will then be glued to a black-painted panel and the different sections filled with colour-matched acrylic paint, before wiring up the final installation.

These 90 minute introductory workshops are offered as part of the Craft Council's Make:Shift:Do weekend, but you are welcome to create more illuminations over the following weeks.

Illuminations will be shown on the night of the West End Lantern Festival at the end of November, competing with Blackpool at just 16 inches high!
