Spring Studio Pop-Up


14 March 2022

Our Learning team are taking over Gallery 1 with their Spring Studio Pop-Up!

Join us during the school holidays from Sat 2 - Sun 17 April for lots of hands-on making. We're putting thoughts, feelings, materials and processes on display, and inviting visitors to 'show their workings' as the space is transformed into a creative studio.

Every day you'll find things to see, make and do. There will be family workshops, drop-in sessions, messy play, a digital day and a giant mural! Come along and explore the process of making and creating together, with the chance to display your artwork for others to see in our ongoing exhibition of work in Gallery 1.

Here's a closer look at what we have coming up. You can also download a copy of our Spring Studio Pop-Up leaflet here.
