Story Chair Making Workshop – Cloud & Weather Watching!
- Sunday 23 July, 2-4pm at Lordship Hub
Free, all ages welcome
No booking required
Honouring local hero Luke Howard (1772-1864), Namer of Clouds, come along and help artist Doodlegänger and Bruce Castle Museum make two storytelling chairs for the Haringey Feast. Inspired by early weather-watcher Luke Howard, you too can look at the wide open skies of Lordship Rec and cloud-watch at the UK’s first official Cloud Appreciation Park at Lordship Rec and have fun illustrating your own cloud-shapes with Doodlegänger. We are also recording phrases and sayings about the weather in different languages – so bring one along and share and add to the chair!
Drop by and add your drawing or weather saying to our story-chairs. Find us by the café at Lordship Hub next to the children’s playground. If wet weather, we will be inside the Hub by the café.
See you there!
Once designed, the chairs will be used by the community at the Haringey Feast at Alexandra Palace in November. After the event, the chairs will be used by the community for storytelling.
What is the Haringey Feast?
Haringey Council was awarded a prestigious Cultural Impact Award by the Mayor of London in 2020. This year in 2023 the Haringey Feast will be held in November, bringing together local people to celebrate the culture and creativity that the borough has to offer. Before that workshops and maker classes will be taking place in the lead up to this fabulous free event at Alexandra Palace on Sunday 19 November with performances, art and food! Do look out for more events coming up! Or, if you are an artist, see how you might be able to join in.
