On their 50th anniversary, the Crafts Council has announced that they have selected Blackpool’s Aunty Social as a Make! Craft Live! partner.
The Crafts Council celebrates this special birthday from October 2021 to October 2022 with a season of nationwide exhibitions, learning events, fairs, and digital activities that celebrates the value of craft to empower, enrich and connect our society. These craft activities will take place at venues across the UK such as craft studios, museums, galleries, schools and community centres.
Aunty Social is pleased to be selected as one of the Crafts Council’s partners. Working together we will prioritise the social and environmental value of making, and platform new voices and narratives that have been historically overlooked. Championing ideas of diversity, sustainability, and resilience, our activity on is a call to action to rethink the role of making as a vehicle for social change.
The Halloween Crafternoon Tea
11:30am & 1:30pm, Saturday 30 October 2021
Blackpool Central Library
Join Aunty Social for a magical and relaxed Halloween gathering hosted by Harry Clayton-Wright. A highlight of the afternoon is an inclusive ceramics workshop with artist Morgan Dowdall. Morgan will guide you as we create striking ceramic collages inspired by the theme of magic.
There will be plenty of tea, snacks, conversation and great tunes – all in a friendly, sober environment. Over the course of the afternoon, there will be two workshop sessions and visitors are very welcome to come and relax when they’re not taking part in the ceramics activity.
