Join us to celebrate the launch of People Play – a new sculpture commission and exhibition by artist Alice Irwin at The Piece Hall. Play with puppets, projections, shadows and light. There will be music, food, drink and children’s activities – a free fun event for all the family. Family workshops include:


Wire Sculptures

Age 5+

Drop-in and create a free-standing wire sculpture with artist Frank Darnley inspired by the symbols, colours and shapes of Irwin’s work.


Pin Puppets and Shadow Play

All ages welcome

Drop-in and create a silhouette portrait, perform your very own show with handmade puppets and learn the enchanting art of hand shadows.
