Join us for a sand casting workshop. You are invited to bring along a meaningful personal object that relates to your grandmother, a grandmother figure, or yourself as a grandmother. It may be a keepsake such as jewellery, an ornament or framed photo. The object should measure no more than 20cm squared. 

In this session, you will cast your precious object, share its story and join in a group discussion about the emotional and historical relationships we have with our treasured possessions and the material world.

Your new cast object can be taken home at the end of the session. Throughout the process, the objects will be treated with the utmost respect.

Presented by the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions in partnership with Multicultural Museums Victoria (MMV), as part of the 'Grandmothers' MMV Group project.
