Creative Afternoon Workshops

First Wednesday of month, 1pm-3.30pm

FREE workshops inspired by our history

Inspired by the incredible collection of objects in the museum stores we’re trialing a sequence of creative afternoon workshops on the first Wednesday of each month.

We’d love you to join us.

The workshops will take place in a friendly space, led by supportive creative practitioners, each using an object as a source of inspiration to make jewelry, poems, sculpture or collage. Come and be part of something special from the start as we explore the museum collection together.

FREE, materials provided.
