Budding artists interested in the history of Lowestoft are invited to take part in a free artist-led workshop focusing on the Scores.
Organised by the Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust as part of the Making Waves Together partnership, a one-day sketching and printing workshop takes place on Thursday 16 May. The workshop, which will be held at the Heritage Workshop Centre on Wilde Score, will comprise sketching on location with Hilary Barry, followed by printmaking with Lisa Hurcum and Hugh Davies from Lowestoft-based paper-works* to produce lino-cut prints depicting the Scores.
Rachel Harrison, Projects Co-ordinator for the Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust said:
“This workshop is a great opportunity for people to learn more about the unique history of the Scores through creative interpretation. Working with some local artists, the workshop is open to all abilities and we would encourage people to reserve their place as soon as possible.”
Making Waves Together is a wider partnership project led jointly by Great Yarmouth Borough Council and East Suffolk Council, funded by the national Great Place Scheme. This sees communities and organisations in both areas work together to boost the cultural offer and drive cultural re-imagination as a way of supporting success in the seaside towns. Great Places has been supported by a grant from Arts Council England and the National Heritage Lottery Fund, supported by Historic England.
