In the build-up to ‘The Time Studio: Connecting Artists & Community’ exhibition, we’re hosting six exciting taster workshops with each of our specially selected artists at the Willis Museum between 20 – 27 July.  


Workshop 2 – Vanessa Rolf – Sunday 21 July 

2 – 4 PM


Age 6+ open to all

Children under 13 need to be accompanied by an adult


Join Vanessa Rolf to explore textiles as we reflect on the museum as a time capsule. Use objects as portals through time to create unique textile pieces.




About the Exhibition 


This summer, 'The Time Studio’ (3 Aug – 3 Nov 24) exhibition, will transform the Sainsbury Gallery into a vibrant space for creativity. We’ve invited six Hampshire-based artists to lead free workshops, tailored to different mediums and age groups, exploring the theme of 'Time.' Take part in this evolving exhibition and see your work on display.

This project is supported by Basingstoke and Dean Borough Council, the UK Government and the UK Shred Prosperity Fund.




This workshop is part of a series of "taster" workshops before the main event. Join some of our artists as we start to create the Time Studio Exhibition. 

Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult – please book a place if you want to take part. 

These workshops take place on the 1st floor of the museum so there are access issues. Please check with museum before booking. 
Workshops are free but prebooking is required. Please let us know if you have to cancel so you place can be offered to someone else. 
Free but donations are very welcome.
