Workshops by Heritage and Jersey Youth Service

JYS are pleased to announce our upcoming workshops with Jersey Heritage: 

Workshop 1: Time Travel Writers Workshop

Embark on a literary adventure with Jersey Heritage as we celebrate the diverse voices of our community! In collaboration with various charities, we present “Time Travel Writers Workshop” – a unique opportunity to explore our collection and share your stories through creative writing.

Join us at our Augres store, where you’ll have exclusive access to our curated collection of historical artefacts. Immerse yourself in the wonders of Jersey’s heritage as you learn about the significance of each item. Then, select an artefact that resonates with you and embark on a journey of self-expression through writing.

In this interactive workshop, you’ll ponder thought-provoking questions about your chosen artefact, exploring its purpose, emotional impact, and inspiring narratives. We encourage participants to express themselves in their native languages, fostering a sense of inclusivity and cultural pride.

Capture the essence of your experience with a personalized portrait alongside your chosen artefact, as we aim to showcase the diverse voices and perspectives within our community through a community exhibition in our link gallery.

Join us in shaping the narrative of our heritage, one story at a time! This workshop offers a unique opportunity for self-expression, cultural exchange, and community engagement.

Workshop 2: Colour The Battle Of Jersey Mural 
Join us for an immersive journey into Jersey’s rich history through art and creativity! At our “Colouring Jersey Heritage” workshop, we invite you to unleash your inner artist while exploring iconic pieces from our Jersey Heritage Art collection.

Through this unique experience, participants will have the opportunity to re-create famous artworks, including the compelling ‘Death of Major Pierson’, which vividly portrays the historic Battle of Jersey. Whether you prefer to work individually or collaborate with fellow enthusiasts, there’s something for everyone – from colouring and painting to collage and more!

As you engage with these masterpieces, you’ll not only express your creativity but also delve deeper into the captivating stories behind each artwork. Our workshops provide a platform for meaningful connections with Jersey’s cultural heritage, offering an enriching experience for participants of all ages.

Bring your enthusiasm and imagination and join us for an unforgettable exploration of art and history! This workshop is perfect for youth clubs and anyone eager to discover Jersey’s fascinating past through artistic expression.
