Children embrace modern art at Bury St Edmunds graffiti bag workshops




Modern art was embraced by children who created vivid bags at Bury St Edmunds art workshops on Monday.

Run by the Crafty Foxes, the graffiti bag sessions – aimed at children aged three to five – saw cotton tote and drawstring bags transformed into vibrant personalised works of art.

Michelle Freeman, of the Crafty Foxes, said the Apex workshops were designed to tie in with the Moments exhibition at Moyse’s Hall Museum.

“It was so nice to be back at the Apex doing what we do,” said Michelle.

“All the adults were really good at being guided by what their child wanted to create and the children were coming up and choosing their paints.

“We had mums, dads and grandparents all getting involved.”

It was the first Crafty Foxes workshop at the Apex since Hallowe’en, due to coronavirus restrictions.
