Get Creative at Home – Play with Words

We’re really excited to be working with local writer and poet Lisette Auton. It’s a chance for all you adults to be part of our “Get Creative at Home” project too.

Watch the video below as Lisette Auton reads The Leas Lead to the Sea, her poem about childhood and growing up.

If you’ve often wanted to write creatively yourself, find a quiet place, take pens and paper and check out Lisette’s next piece a ‘guided writing journey’ helping you explore your memories as a wonderful source of material for poems and stories, sharing the secret of how to capture experiences and memories to use in your own writing.

Go on, let your imagination fly!

You can download a transcript of The Power of memories audio journey here.

National Share-a-story Month

To celebrate National Share-a-story Month writer Lisette Auton shares with us her little books and shows us in the video below how to make our very own filling them with anything from doodles to dandelions.

Rainbow of Memories

The Rainbow has become the symbol of Hope, join writer Lisette Auton and make a Rainbow of Memories.
Whether it’s remembering the end of a War, times with families and friends that we cherish or just these strange days we are living in.

Oldest Thing In Your House

It’s difficult to stay connected to other people at the moment. Our latest activity is designed for children to be able to share the book they make with family members they can’t meet right now. You can also have fun together finding the oldest thing in your house and talking about it. Psst … Grandpa doesn’t count as the oldest thing!

Lisette Auton shows us how to make our own history book here

Don’t forget to share with us your creative pieces at museumenquiries@redcar-cleveland.gov.uk, we would love to see them!
