Moyse’s Hall’s latest exhibition has been continuing a pace with two workshops which saw youngsters further exploring the science fiction and action genre.

Last Tuesday, around 25 children made keyring Terminator heads at a special Sci-fi and Action Exhibition craft workshop at the Bury museum.

They carefully crafted their designs using metal skulls, layered with Fimo modelling clay and hair made from shaved pipe cleaners to represent an Terminator Endoskeleton head.

Then on Wednesday, around 30 children took part in a second workshop to meet Stormtrooper TK-335, from the original Star Wars Movie: A New Hope, to be inducted into the Imperial Army.

“The children were given the chance to meet a Stormtrooper, learn about his life, handle Star Wars weapons including an E-II Blaster Rifle and Princess Leia’s pistol, and then being inducted into the Imperial Army,” said Lance Alexander, heritage operations manager.

“With a mixture of girls and boys, it shows the Force is still very much alive in Bury St Edmunds.”
