Zine-making with Sarah Taylor Silverwood

Barber Home – 25 June 2020

We’re thinking about families… and families come in all shapes and sizes!

Inspired by Adriaen van Ostade’s drawing ‘The Child and The Doll’, join artist Sarah Taylor Silverwood to make a zine and reflect on time spent with your family, whoever and wherever they may be.

Anyone can make a zine – children, families and grown-ups!

Download the activity book and zine template and share your own family-focused zine with us.
