Each year, we host a variety of free family art activities and workshops that link in with the objects and themes of our Exhibitions.
You will find below a several downloadable activities to inspire you to get creative and make things from home! Please feel free to make adjustments and experiment with different materials if you don’t have everything on the list – these resources are flexible and we hope they provide you with inspiration!
Please share anything you create with us via our social media pages, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and have a look on them for further engagement, video clips and lots of images of the exhibitions and complementary activity.
