A fabulous programme of exhibitions and events runs from Wednesday 1 to Friday 31 May 2019 .  During Local History Month, amongst a packed programme, printmaker and artist Adrian Moule is leading Trace Lines activity on Saturday 11 May 2019 with a bookable workshop for adults running 9.30am – 11.30am and a drop in session open to all ages running 12 noon – 3pm, children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.  Adrian is leading the fantastic Trace Lines programme including activity in Darlington Library and around Darlington.  Sessions held in Darlington Library this March produced some fantastic work and they and those in the Town Centre in April were very popular and stimulated conversation about Darlington.


In Local History Month he will invite participants to creatively explore the Darlington bear in print.  I’m also looking forward to A Talk on Story Collecting and Paper Cutting by Dover Art Prize winning artist Bethan Maddock in the gallery at Darlington Library on Saturday 18 May at 1.30pm.  There will be opportunities to learn more about Bethan’s practice and to share thoughts around the heritage of Darlington.

The full Local History Month programme includes free exhibitions, and a mix of drop in and bookable events, including  great talks.  To book and for more information please call 01325 349630, or visit the Centre for Local Studies, Crown Street Library, Darlington, DL1 1ND or go online at www2.darlington.gov.uk
