A series of workshops - everyone welcome

Between 10am and 12.30pm every Friday morning, you’re invited to drop into our ‘creative space’ and make something inspired by the museum collection.
Our creative sessions are free and open to all! Join us to make and create together and contribute to our growing museum! The sessions will be led by artists, makers and writers, all influenced by this unique museum.

Collage and animation – Friday 17 and Friday 24 May

Looking at cell doors from our collection, we will cut out, draw and collage details to create our own projections. This will be photographed with artist Rosny Hayward to create an animation of your collages.

Identity portraits – Friday 31 May and Friday 28 June

How do you see yourself? Explore how you show yourself to the world, by creating your own collage identity portraits.

Photography – Friday 7 June and Friday 5 July

Spend time observing the fascinating details inside our unique historic building. Take your own images with experienced published photographer George Miles, senior lecturer in photography at Nottingham Trent University.

All abilities, ages and experience welcome, bring your own camera!

Spoon Puppet Workshop – Friday 14 June
Join us to make a spoon puppet inspired by a notorious Nottingham character or conjure up your own fictional scoundrel. Artist, Clare Taylor, will guide you through a relaxed drop-in ‘spoon puppet’ workshop where you’ll have fun letting your imagination run wild!

Clay Scoundrels – Friday 12 July and Friday 9 August 2019
Create a dastardly character from clay to add to the National Justice Museum’s Rogues Gallery. In a relaxed setting you’ll work with artist, Clare Taylor, to concoct a villain worthy of imprisonment in Nottingham’s very own County Gaol. This free drop in session is designed for families and takes place in a friendly creative space in the museum court yard.
