Fun Palace – where everyone is an artist and a scientist!
Join us for our Corby Fun Palace – a fun-filled afternoon exploring creativity, art and science! Suitable for all ages, join a team of professional artists to try something new and create your own masterpiece. Keep an eye out for an announcement of who the artists are nearer the time.
We will be joined by artists from Corby Community Arts who will be teaching us how to create cyanotypes! This is a fun and unique way of using UV rays from the sun (hopefully, if the weather’s nice! But don’t worry, we have a UV bulb as a back-up plan!), to make your very own work of art!! This process is so simple that it uses science and nature together and only takes 5 minutes to develop!
Another exciting activity we have is the art of tangrams – an ancient Chinese puzzle using art, craft, design and mathematics! Each person will be given a kit containing all of the elements to create their own Tangram puzzle and a small booklet of puzzles to solve!
Fun Palaces is an ongoing national campaign for culture at the heart of every community, and an annual weekend of action – arts, science, craft, tech, digital and sports events and activities – run by and for local communities.
We believe that creativity within a community can change the world for the better, and everyone in Corby can help make a Fun Palace! So why not join us at Kingswood Neighbourhood Centre for an adventure…and discover your talent for arts and science?
