Join in with the Birds – in association with Juneau Projects, and Invisible Dust

Artists Juneau Projects will be offering a series of online workshops and activity packs to make illustrations of local birds especially Humber Estuary wading birds like lapwing, avocet and curlew. The workshops will feature techniques such as printing with lino blocks, paper-cutting, painting and drawing. You will be able to sign up for a workshop and receive a kit of materials to work with.

Workshops will happen online with Ben and Phil from Juneau Projects. There will also be activity kits available to work offline.

The finished illustrations will be used in an artist’s book featuring all the images produced during the project. The finished book will be given to all participants and will be on sale at the Museum.

Help make a book based on local birds for North Lincolnshire Museums.

Do you have knowledge or stories of local birds you would be willing to share? It could be something unusual you saw on a day out spotting, scientific information about particular species’ habits or migrations, knowledge of the countries and landscapes the birds migrate to or folklore or tales about particular birds.

Share your stories with us and they could end up featured in a new book project alongside bird illustrations by local people. You will receive a copy of the finished book in return taking part.

Please send your stories to Juneau.projects@gmail.com by 26 August 2020.
