In March this year, Holly and Hannah led a placemaking masterclass for a group of young people at the Hull School of Art and Design, as part of the National Saturday Club programme. Alongside tutors of the college and British Land, We Made That challenged the group to rediscover their local shopping centre St Stephen’s, and reveal its unexpected side. The workshop resulted in the group creating a zine using photography, drawing, modelling, printmaking and graphic design, to uncover secrets, celebrate the overlooked and tell new stories about the centre.
An exhibition in Somerset House showcases the stories and creations of 1,500 13-16 year olds attending free Saturday morning classes at their local college, university or museum, courtesy of the National Saturday Club. The zine created by the young people in Hull and We Made That is available at the exhibition which is open between the 9th-17th June, in the Embankment Galleries.
