Abbey House Museum

Abbey Walk, Kirkstall, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS5 3EH

A children's workshop with artist Ellie Harrison (drop in session). 

How would you want to be remembered in 100 years? Time capsules are containers filled with objects which tell you about the people who made them. Once time capsules are filled they are hidden away or buried, and left for someone in the future to find. During this workshop you can make your own time capsule. Get inspiration from our Remembrance exhibition, and think about the objects that are important to you.

 Ellie Harrison is a performance maker and artist. She creates a range of solo and collaborative devised performance work for studios, galleries, found and public spaces. Participation is at the heart of all of her work as a performer, facilitator and mentor of young people. Her work is often characterised by a playful and provocative approach to difficult topics, encouraging audiences to make decisions and participate. You can find out more about her work here.

This is a drop in session and the entry fee to the museum will apply. For more information ring 0113 3784079 or email


This talk is part of a programme of events linked to Abbey House Museum's exhibition Remembrance.

How have we chosen to remember those close to us in the past? How important are objects, places and actions in helping us tell personal stories today about those we have lost? This new display, co-curated with Abbey House Museum and the University of Leeds, reflects on how commemoration has changed since the Victorian era and features contributions from people in contemporary Leeds. 

Find out more about the exhibition here.
