As we reopen our doors, you are invited to in-person, family friendly Space to Create! workshops back in our Active Space.

Join us in our Active Space every Saturday for 45-minute creative sessions to draw, make and build together with your household. 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.
If all bookable slots are taken, please do look out for future opportunities.
