Ania Bas invites you to make lists of things you regret, want to forget or stop worrying about. The lists will form the inspiration for regret and forget poems that we will then write in this session. Have a go at a sonnet, a limerick, a haiku or free verse, and let go of memories you can’t stop fretting about.

Drop-in workshops for all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Free, no booking required.


Ongoing during gallery hours

3 August – 24 September 2017, Wednesdays – Sundays 11am –  5pm

The exhibition Zadie Xa: The Conch, Sea Urchin and Brass Bell is accompanied by an exciting programme of events and activities for children and adults.

Pump House Gallery’s InHouse Project Space presents ‘Unwanted Memory Bank’ – a new piece of work by artist Ania Bas to complement Zadie Xa’s exhibition in the gallery.

This project invites visitors to consider the value we attach to objects and memories. Inspired by objects around the Project Space, we challenge you to dig into your bag to find unwanted things from which to make a sculpture, or make drawings of things you don’t need or want anymore.

Join Ania Bas for free drop-in family workshops throughout August and September to experiment with writing, drawing and publishing. This is a fun and interactive way for families to creatively explore their unwanted belongings and memories.

About the artist

Ania Bas is an artist working across text, performance, publishing and social engagement to create situations that support dialogue and exchange, as well as explore and question existing frameworks of participation. She is interested in the ways that objects and narratives shape understanding, mythology and knowledge of places and people.

Upcoming family workshops

Sundays 6 August, 20 August, 3 September, 17 September, with a final event and workshop on 24 September.

Drop-in workshops for all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Free, no booking required.
