The word ‘Endling’ was coined to describe the last named survivor of a family, but has now come to mean the last survivor of a species. Usually with a name, such as Martha, the last passenger Pigeon; Benjamin, the last Thylacine; and Lonesome George, the last Pinta Island Tortoise. Sadly, the world we live in now is likely to be full of endlings. So, to give space for play and happier thoughts, this creative workshop is set to allow you to dive into the personal stories of endlings by making your very own, and allowing its story to be heard, before taking it home for snuggles and reassurances that even though it is the only one of its kind in existence, it will never be wanting for a friend.
This workshop will teach you ways of (I would say ‘how to’, but that implies there is only one right way) making amazing creatures out of socks and gloves – themselves often lost, lonely endlings in their own right – and seriously, no advance knowledge of sewing or creating is required! All materials, teaching, and hot beverages supplied. Come along and create your own creature: tell us its name, and its story, and how it came to be an endling.
Workshop is approx 2.5 hours to include time for people to share their endling stories, and suitable for age 14+ (under 16s must be accompanied by an adult). Tea and bikkits will be provided, and there is also a lovely cafe nextdoor if you want to get lunch. Tickets available below. Concessionary rate of £15 available to those in receipt of benefits or on a very low income, just apply the code “Martha” at the checkout 🙂
