A Creative Family Workshop

This is a past event.

A Creative Family Workshop

Inspired by the smallest exhibits within the Museum and the miniature worlds on its doorstep, this creative family workshop explores all things tiny!

From bugs and mini-beasts, to toys and tiny books, this workshop features storytelling, silly songs and some perfectly proportioned poetry inspired by the natural world. Enjoy a live performance, followed by a mini-museum hunt and a fun family poetry writing session.

This activity is open to all. You do not need to book for the Museum in order to attend this workshop.

Date and Time: Thursday 10th August, 10am or 2pm

Information for guardians
Both workshops will have a relaxed approach and all families are welcome. The afternoon session will have some additional adjustments to make them even more welcoming for SEND families, including a gentle start, an introduction to the facilitator and the loan of a calm backpack.

Who the session is suitable for
