HELP US CREATE DJURSLAND’S LARGEST BEADED PICTURE

We are inviting all children to join us in making Djursland’s largest beaded picture. Read more below.

In connection with our summer exhibition “No Strings – Beads in a Modern Context”, all children visiting the museum are invited to join us in making Djursland’s largest beaded picture. The beaded designs made by the children will be regularly sorted by glass artist, Micha Karlslund, to create a huge picture inspired by flowering apple trees. You will be able to see the final result from 16th September – 9th October 2019. 

You can follow Micha Karlslund at work and see how the picture evolves every third Wednesday and Thursday at the museum between 2.00pm and 4.00pm:
26th-27th June, 17th-18th July, 7th-8th August, 28th-29th August and 14th-15th September.

The project will continue as a part of the museum’s activities for children during opening hours until 15th September. Normal admission to the museum. 

Make a beaded design and get a free children’s ticket
When you have made your design, you can hand it in the reception desk with your name and where you come from. In return you will receive a complimentary admission ticket so you can come and see the finished work.
