‘Our Story’ is a creative project to document something that is meaningful to you – an experience, place, person, pet .. the possibilities are endless! Explore techniques such as collage and writing to produce a lovely miniature hardback concertina book. Artist Alison Waters and Arc’s own Jacqui Wood will guide you through telling your chosen story, through a series of helpsheets and videos to create at home.
Your story is yours, but perhaps try to navigate a journey of positivity, connection and love. It may be preferred to create it with a person, thing or place in mind.
Do you want to document history? Point out the strengths of a certain friendship? Create a wedding gift? Reflect on a favourite place, or good times?
The pack is a focused opportunity to encourage positivity and creation, ending up with a thoughtful, beautiful and tangible artistic document to keep forever for reflection, to gift or even bequest to your descendants!
