Minerva Arts is a vibrant multidisciplinary company based in Chester. The Mill Stories workshop will focus on the stories of people working in Macclesfield’s mills.
Minerva Arts' workshops combine performance with visual arts and crafts. They are stimulating, friendly and engaging, giving young people a memorable and positive experience and a chance to boost their own creativity.
The Mill Stories workshop will focus on the stories of people working in Macclesfield’s mills. The first day will include a guided tour of the amazing Paradise Mill among original Jacquard looms. We will tell them some stories from the museum of specific characters from the industrial heritage as inspiration for creating stories and drama. Participants will also have the opportunity to try creative writing and prop, set and costume making in this programme and share their work with their parents and carers at the end of the final day.
