Space to Create! November

You are invited to in-person, family friendly Space to Create! workshops in our Active Space. Free!


Join us every Saturday for 45-minute creative sessions to draw, make and build together. Activities are artist-led and inspired by our exhibitions – we encourage everyone to take part and get making.

All events require pre-booking. Our programme is suitable for children age 4+ unless stated, but all are welcome. All under 16s must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
