Free Family Workshops: *reopening in the near future*

The sessions of hands-on creative activity, inspired by the current exhibitions, are aimed at ages 5-10 years but younger siblings and participants are more than welcome! Our free family activities are designed to inspire imaginations, engage, challenge and spend some creative time making and exploring contemporary art as a family. This is a bookable event with limited spaces, please email Morgan to book: morgan.stockton@dmu.ac.uk
