1970s Inspired Art

As part of our activities for ‘Saving the 70s’ we hosted a 1970s inspired art workshop at Berkhamsted Arts and Crafts in Lower Kings Road.

We began the session with handing objects from the 1970s.  We talked about the sort of music people listened to and how they listened to it.  How different the clothes were and what TV shows people watched.  There was no internet or mobiles, so how did children keep themselves entertained?  This then inspired the participants to create a canvas each.

Here are some comments:

what do you think of the 70s now? “it’s interesting, but weird, because of the platform shoes, the men wore them!”

“Who would of known the 70s was so much fun”

“I really really enjoyed today” What bit did you like most? “I liked all of it”
