Rochester Cathedral is hosting a beautiful art installation this month, and attracting several thousand visitors each day to see it. Called the ‘Museum of the Moon’ this wonderful replica of the moon, seven metres in diameter, is suspended in the cathedral’s Nave. It’s an amazing artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram featuring detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. It also glows ethereally and is accompanied by a surround sound composition by Dan Jones.
As part of Rochester Cathedral’s education programme running alongside the exhibit, Intra Arts’ director Xtina Lamb ran a space themed screen printing workshop at the cathedral during half term. It was a sold out activity with over 100 bags or cushion covers printed by people of all ages. With 7000+ people visiting the cathedral that day, some people inevitably missed out on the workshop, so we’ve decided to host another opportunity to screen print your own special souvenir Museum of the Moon at INTRA, before the moon floats away from the cathedral and off to another venue.
We have times available for Saturday 29th February between 10am and 3.30pm, with the following prices: Small tote bags: £5 (20 minutes printing) Large tote bags: £7 (30 minutes printing) Cushion covers: £10 (30 minutes printing)
The activity is suitable for all ages, and enjoyed by adults and children alike. You will have a selection of moon and space-themed designs to print with. For a small tote bag you’ll have enough time to print 3 or four designs, for the larger items you’ll fit in about 6 to 8 designs.
