Open Me, Dream Be

MorganMurray Arts

Drop-in workshop

Come and create with Helen and Janice from Morgan Murray Arts. We will be bringing along our amazing cabinet of curiosities to show you. Open Me, Dream Be is a specially designed cabinet displaying more than a hundred keepsakes, each telling a story of a West Cumbrian town. The doors of a magical cabinet open to reveal the sacred bird: a commonly recognised, and yet beautifully realised pigeon. The bird known as the “Guardian” peers out, protecting the dreams and aspirations of a local community.

Now it's time to set that beautiful bird free. Be inspired by our cabinet and help us decide what would be the first thing the bird would do once free. What adventures would it have?

Using collage, embellishments and drawing, help our bird to fly by gifting it one of your decorated feathers, containing your ideas, hopes and dreams.


This is a FREE drop-in workshop: you can pop in for a short time or stay for longer.

We can’t wait to hear each of your stories and see your creativity.
