Half Moon theatre in Limehouse is becoming terribly arty for five days straight as part of nationwide event, Children’s Art Week.

There will be gallery visits for schools and families as well as two workshops on June 16 with print and textile artist Deborah Andrews, exploring the themes and philosophy behind her current Half Moon exhibition A Stitch in Time: Reflections from Childhood

The exhibition is a collection of intricate machine embroidered works, etchings and digital prints made from observational drawings, that are designed to evoke happy memories of childhood.

At the workshops parents and children can ask Deborah questions about her approach to her work and discover what’s behind the creative process. There will also be a gallery trail.

Half Moon’s creative learning producer Beccy Allen said: “From working with artist Deborah Andrews to creating their own art in response to our current exhibition, A Stitch in Time – Reflections from Childhood, Half Moon offers an interactive opportunity for young people to express themselves through drawing and colour, explore artistic themes and become inspired, engaged and entertained by art. It’s going to be a really creative week.”

Children’s Art Week runs nationally from June 13-21.
