A ‘Chronicle of Curiosities’ public workshop will take place at Whitby Museum on Wednesday, December 4.

The ‘Chronicle of Curiosities’ event will be held at Whitby Museum.

Whitby Museum, and artist in residence Layla Khoo, is inviting members of the public to take part in a public workshop, taking casts and stories from people connected with Whitby and the curious objects which they hold dear.

A spokesman said: “These objects should not be valuable in the traditional sense, but of sentimental or emotional value – of no worth or meaning to anybody but yourself.

“This object will have a mould taken from it and a plaster cast made as a replica, to be featured in the final exhibition, along with it’s story in a Cabinet of Curiosities.”

The sessions, which cost £10, will be held at 11am to 12.30pm; 1.30pm to 3pm; 3.30pm to 5pm and 6pm to 7.30pm.

Tickets to the workshops are limited, to book your place and for more information please visit the Whitby Museum website https://whitbymuseum.org.uk/special-events-2/
