Try Zoom’s hands-on challenge this half -term

Creative opportunities – and relief from the election – for adults and children are available at the Great Hands-On Challenge in the Zoom Room this half-term. Nick Terdre reports.

Members of the Zoom Arts collective not only put on exhibitions of their art to delight the public, but are also keen to offer the community creative opportunities.

Starting with the May bank holiday, all of the half-term week you can come along to the Zoom Room – the group’s bijou gallery at St Leonards Warrior Square station – and join in the Great Hands-On Challenge, creating a giant collage of hands.

It’s a good chance to give the kids something novel and creative to do – and the adults too!

Free and open to all

...and Juliet.

…and Juliet.

The event, which is free and open to all, will be hosted by Zoom members Susan Cleland and Juliet Przyborski. Come and stay as little or as long as you like, they say – no booking is necessary. materials are provided. But children must be accompanied by adults.

Your work will be on show during the week and available to take home when the project finishes, Susan says. All the work will be photographed and the photos displayed in a future exhibition.

And if you have spare materials to donate – wrapping paper, tissue paper, crepe paper, thick wallpaper, card, silver paper or foil, not to mention brushes, felt-tips, pencils, water-soluble paints, glue, tape, ribbon, fabric, string and so on – please bring them along.
