Aura Libraries are delighted to be hosting some fantastic Collage Workshops with Artist Simon Grennan across our libraries in October and November.
Participants will be able to make their own exciting visual stories, using Victorian magazines and print, collage and drawing. These sessions are suitable for both adults and children (children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult) and materials will all be provided on the day.
Simon Grennan has been making new animated films for a project called “Drawing Blood, Drawing Poison, Drawing Fire.” The animations digitally cut up and transform an 1880s book in Gladstone’s Library, Hawarden.

The workshops will be held on the following dates:
• Monday 25 October 10.00am-12.00pm at Flint Library
• Thursday 28 October 10.00am-12.00pm at Mold Library
• Monday 15 November 2.00-4.00 pm at Broughton Library
• Tuesday 16 November 2.00-4.00pm at Connahs Quay Library
• Wednesday 17 November 10.00am–12.00pm at Deeside Library
• Friday 19 November 10.00am–12.00pm at Holywell Library
• Thursday 25 November 2.00-4.00pm at Buckley Library
Simon, sharing his excitement about hosting the workshops, said: “This is a great opportunity to explore how old stories collide with and inspire new stories, particularly when we can work directly with Victorian illustrations – stories that are over 100 years old. I’m really looking forward to seeing how you create new stories from old, with cut and paste and drawing.”
Come along to the library and join Simon to create your own exciting visual stories using Victorian magazines and print, collage and drawing! If you would like to register for one of the workshops, please contact your local library or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
