What you need to know

Designer and Maker, Emma Carlow, joins Pollock's to create her latest "Make Believe Museum Shop". During lockdown, Emma spent her time researching folk art, hoping to find fresh inspiration for her work and gain a greater understanding of other cultures. Her research led her to the questions, "What would a folk museum shop be like and what would I like to buy there?". This became the theme for an exhibition held in September 2020 at the Meiklejohn Gallery in Lewes "My Make Believe Museum Shop".

Over the next few months Emma will do the same in response to our unique collection creating designs, objects and artworks culminating in a line of products which will be displayed and sold in our Museum toyshop alongside some workshops! Line up below:

18th Nov @ 6-8pm: Join us for the launch part of Emma's Make Believe Museum Shop at Pollock's! Limited spaces available!

20th Nov + 4th Dec @ 11am + 2:30pm: Make Your Own...Pop Up Flower (1 hour workshop including Museum entry)

27th Nov + 10th Dec @ 11am + 2:30pm: Make Your Own...Dancing Puppet (2 hour workshop including Museum entry)
