Following the latest government announcement, all our museum-based and outreach workshops will unfortunately be suspended until at least Spring half term.

Whilst on-site and in-school work has been paused, we are busy creating alternative opportunities to give pupils vital opportunities to connect to, experience, and be inspired by our collections.

We have lots of online ‘You Inspire Me To…’ activities, which can be done at home. Find all our 'Inspire me to...' activities here.

You can still explore our nationally- recognised learning approach - The Art & Science of Noticing - which encourages pupils to respond to the museum and gallery objects whilst developing their literacy skills. See The Art & Science of Noticing in action: https://youtu.be/5li-jZKb4p4

We are hoping we will be able to welcome you back into our museums soon! We have adapted our workshop offer to provide Covid-secure activities. If you would like to book one of the workshops listed below at a date from March onwards, please get in touch. If the workshop you would like to access is not listed below, please contact us and we can let you know as soon as it is reinstated.
