A chance to see the incredible Folk Beast creations made in response to our 2020 outreach activity project…
In 2020 Hart Club and The Golden Thread Project came together to commission the design of art packs that would be distributed to people who were isolating as part of the pandemic. With the help of Arts Council England, almost 2,000 art packs were made and distributed to artists and supported studios across the UK.
Folk Beasts and Friends is an exhibition of outcomes from the initial project and a chance to see the incredible breadth of work made remotely during the pandemic. In particular, the exhibition will be highlighting the artwork made by the arts charity Henshaws in Yorkshire, where the artists were inspired to create folk beasts and mythical creatures for over a year after receiving their art packs.
