Half-Term Family Workshop

21st February 2013

The February half-term holiday brought some 40 children and family members to Worplesdon Memorial Hall and the Sidney Sime Gallery for an afternoon of fun and activities, aimed at introducing them to Sidney Sime, 'master of the mysterious'.

The event was run in conjunction with the Your Paintings initiative (a partnership between the BBC and the Public Catalogue Foundation) and was very kindly sponsored by Ewbanks Auctions.

Activities included a quiz, drawing caricatures, completing a giant Sime 'jigsaw' painting, creating 'mosaic' pictures, and stories.

The picture shows the happy participants with the Mayor of Guildford, Mrs Jenny Jordan, and Tim Dolby, picture restorer and painter, who has restored a number of the Gallery's paintings.
