Museum Art Festival: Create music with giant musical sculptures

Come and join us for a workshop with Ben Gates -at the Museum Arts Festival and make your own gigantic musical sculpture

The Keswick Town Council has generously funded us to invite the professional artist Ben Gates. He will evoke the spirit and enthusiasm of the original curator Peter Crosthwaite. To commemorate his famous original musical stones, Ben will give children and adults the chance to make their own exciting sound sculpture.

Ben Gates designs giant percussion and interactive sound sculptures.  He runs fun, educational and interactive workshops and uses a specially designed kit to enable participants to create large colorful and abstract musical sculptures (www.bengates.co.uk).
