The short tour is followed by a creative makers workshop that encourages participants to incorporate the designs, patterns and colours from the exhibition into their own work.

Design and make a retro starburst clock or name sign for your bedroom door.

For children aged 12 to 16. Children are to be accompanied by an adult. To adhere to COVID-19 regulations, we ask that each child is accompanied by one adult only.

Staff suggestion: why not stick around for milkshakes or lunch at Café Constitution after your creative morning.
