This May bank holiday weekend (29-30th May) the BPMA Museum Store in Debden will be open to the public on both Saturday and Sunday for special events. Both days are free and all are welcome. The Store will be open from 10.00am until 4.00pm.
Mini Curator Day, Saturday 29th May
Mini Curator Day will give young visitors the chance to act as curator for the day, learning about objects, how to care for them and how to explain what they are to others! Use white gloves in a handling session and create a ‘Mini Curator’ rosette to show others. Display your work as you see fit in our display area and enter the raffle to win a prize!
Craft Day, Sunday 30th May
The hugely successful and popular East London Craft Guerrilla will be in the Store from 12.00pm to help visitors create accessories and other crafted responses to items in the store, using textiles and paper to re-imagine our items in new ways.
The Guerrillas use recycled textiles in their work and we encourage you to bring along anything you would like to use in your piece. The Guerrillas are expert crafters who will be on hand to assist.
The Store is easy to find from Debden tube station (Central Line) or there is parking outside – it is located within Unit 7 of the Debden Industrial Estate on Lenthall Road, IG10 3UD.
