Creative challenges

This summer we launched a series of creative challenges. Created with artist Vicki Aimers there are seven challenges for you to explore. The challenges build on our ARTchive series of creative workshops inspired by our amazing archive collections. While we can’t host actual workshops at the moment, we hope you’ll enjoy taking part in #ArmchairARTchive, and that you will share your makes on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with us @kresenkernow using the special hashtag.

Each challenge consists of a PDF download of guidelines (available below). Hopefully you will have most of the equipment and materials available around your home, and we’re providing some exclusive content from the Kresen Kernow archives that you can use for each challenge. We hope you enjoy participating in the activities, and look forward to seeing what you create.
