Make your own Advent Calendar using your imagination to paint, draw, and collage a large image with doors that open to reveal small pictures inside. Share your memories, culture and traditions and explore the wonderful decorative richness and folk imagery surrounding Winter Festivals, from robins and reindeers to angels, fir trees, real fires, rangoli decorations and menorah candles. Create a wonderful decoration for your home and enjoy making something unique with artist Katherine Tulloh – perhaps this will be the start of a new tradition for your family. All materials provided. Suitable for all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Katherine Tulloh is an artist and educator living and working in Hackney. She believes in helping young artists find their voice through experimental and imaginative projects that develop creativity in a fun way, through art and writing. She is a painter and filmmaker, winner of the Swedenborg Society’s Best Experimental Film 2010 for All Night My Dreams, which was also shown at White Cube as part of Dreamers Awake in 2020. Recent exhibitions include Snake Milk, Minkowski Space, 2020, Interior Day, Broadway Bookshop, 2020, and Sciomancy, Transition Gallery, 2017. Her work embraces narrative and explores the physicality of paint. Her current paintings, to be exhibited in Spring 2024, focus on early rave culture, its visual echoes of early Renaissance painting, and how the city, constantly reconfigured, manifests the ghosts of these past intense dance spaces.
