Responding to the Book:
Open Day & Workshops
Workshops, 12:45 - 2:45pm
Open Day, 3:00 - 6:00pm
This Saturday, April 6th, we are hosting an Open Day at the Holy Biscuit, to celebrate the official launch of our programme of events and exhibitions inspired by the Lindisfarne Gospels' return to the region.
'Responding to the Book' is curated by THB's artist in Residence for the Lindisfarne Gospels programme, Julia Tryon, and features work by the Biscuit Family Studio Artists. Since the launch of the residency in March, Julia has been exploring the Lindisfarne Gospels and its legacy to the region, as landmark cultural and religious achievement, and its contemporary relevance to the community of Shieldfield, in Newcastle. She has been meeting with various community groups, schools, businesses, churches, and local charities, to discuss the gospels and what they mean to a diverse multicultural urban community.
Come to the open day, from 3:00 - 6:00pm, to learn more about the project and the residency, and have a chat with Julia Tryon and the other artists featured in the exhibition.
There will also be two workshops before the open day:
Bookmaking and Celtic Drawing
