Try your hand at printmaking in this family workshop.

Inspired by our current exhibition Polly Braden: Leaving Ukraine, create a printed wallhanging featuring places that mean something special to you. Guided by artist Phoebe Kaniewska you will use printmaking techniques to create your wallhanging, plus contribute to a collaborative artwork with everyone in the workshop. At the end of the session you’ll be free to take your masterpiece home to show it off to your family and friends. Suitable for ages 5-12.

There are two sessions, running from 11am-1pm and 2pm-4pm. You can choose your preferred time at the checkout. Please note the 11am workshop features BSL interpretation.
