Halloween is guaranteed to be a different one this year, no trick-or-treating, and no Halloween parties. Covid-19 has drastically changed how we go about doing things but the Hunt Museum is working hard to make sure you can still have fun this Halloween, by moving their usual Halloween festivities online for everyone to enjoy.
This year, the Hunt Museum is putting together its virtual exhibition, “Best Costume Goes To..” with arts and crafts workshops to deliver fun and artsy activities for kids and families at home during the Halloween week.
The Hunt Museum have prepared a Halloween pack with three different activities:
The first pack is a Scary Stopmotion Workshop. The Hunt Museum is delighted to present the Scary Stop Motion Toolkit which will help you to create your very own Halloween short movie at home. The Toolkit is made up of three parts so that the process is broken down into easy steps. As part of mid-term break children will be given the tools via the website and social media to use their imaginations to plan, and shoot their own spooky short animation presenting the scariest objects in the collection and using the costumes from the BCGT exhibition. Over the next three days, October 29 to October 30, the Hunt Museum will be releasing your go-to guide to creating your very own Scary Stop Motion Animation. Each day you will have access to a new piece of the puzzle, how to write your story, and then how to create your own work on paper and finally, how to put together your animation.
The second pack is a Mask Workshop. A funny Mask Workshop based on BCGT and delivered by two Limerick artists, Sian Costello and Anna Gormley. Anna and Sian will take you through two different ways you can make a mask. You will need white paper, a cereal box, scissors, string, and paint to take part in this workshop. Go crazy and have fun, Glitter is a mask’s best friend. The Mask Workshop will be launched as a live streaming premiere on YouTube on Friday, October 30 at 2 pm right HERE
The third and last pack is a Zoom Masquerade Workshop and Parade. On Saturday, October 31 at 11 am join the Hunt Museum on their live Zoom call. Together you will be making spooky masks inspired by their exhibition BCGT and your imagination! You will need a Cereal box, scissors, glue, a pencil, masking tape, a variety of different colours, and a chopstick to hold up your mask. There will be two sessions one at 11 am on Saturday and the other at 3 pm on Saturday and to get the link and password for the Zoom Call Workshop HERE
