These Show Me How for Families sessions are an opportunity for children and young people to learn new making and craft skills with the help of their parent(s), guardian or carer.

Crochet for Beginners

10am - 11am OR 11.30am - 12.30pm

An Introduction to Marquetry

Make a Xylophone

Use copper tubing, wood off-cuts and other everyday materials to make and tune a simple xylophone.

Functional Pottery 

led by Jo Koegh 

A range of simple techniques will be demonstrated for you to then test out together and have a go at making a function piece of pottery. 

1.30pm - 2.30pm OR 3pm - 4pm

You can come to one, or more, or all of the sessions but capacity is limited so booking is essential. 

Spaces on the sessions are limited to a maximum of five families per session. We are unable to take booking from just adults wishing to attend.

Some sessions will involve the use of tools. It's the accompanying parent(s), guardian or carer to decide what they are happy for their children to undertake. Guidance and further information will be available on the day.

Show Me How is part of Market Town, a programme of commissions and critical debate that sets out to re-imagine the future of Loughborough’s high streets.

For & Against: Art, Politics and the Pamphlet

For & Against: Art, Politics and the Pamphlet is a collaborative project between Radar and Loughborough University academics Dr Gillian Whiteley and Dr Jane Tormey, RadicalAesthetics-RadicalArt (RaRa).

This engaging programme responds to research into the political pamphlet and the relevance of the pamphlet for contemporary art practice. It has comprised a series of public workshops, a symposium, a Charnwood Museum exhibition and Pamphlet Day, a day-long public event in the town centre. Jane Tormey and Gillian Whiteley are working on a forthcoming edited book, ‘Art, Politics and the Pamphleteer’, to be published in the RaRa series by Bloomsbury.

This exhibition shares elements of this project, including new pamphlets by artists Patrick Goddard, Ferenc Gróf and Rory Pilgrim, commissioned by Radar; a selection of historical pamphlets from the Art of the Pamphlet exhibition; documentation of a series of pamphlet workshops led by artists Freee, Ruth Beale, Ciara Phillips and Little Riot Press and artworks inspired by For & Against workshops led by artists Chiara Dellerba and Sarah Green, and writer Alison Mott.
