Available for free from Leeds Art Gallery entrance 26 – 30 October, 11am – 3pm.

A creative activity bag consists of…

  • One of 1000 fabric bags produced by printmaker Laura Slater. Made possible through the Cultural Recovery Fund.
  • A ‘curiosity’ sketchbook and so named pencil. The sketchbook opens out, inviting you to look through a pre-cut slot – part of the book’s fabrication – into a different world of curiosity and imagination.
  • A collectors activity with visual elements inspired by and part of artist Georgina Starr’s Le Cerveau Affame “The Hungry Brain” project.
  • A Landscape colouring book with drawings by young people from four Leeds primary schools.
  • Postcards and a family friendly activity sheet.
