This event is free and no booking is necessary, just drop in any time from 11:00 to 16:00.

Suitable for families with children aged 6+. This is an intergenerational workshop – we encourage creativity in all ages! Children must be accompanied by an adult.


Visitors who would prefer a step-free entrance can use the accessible entrance on Cookridge Street, using the lift to bring you onto the ground floor. The workshop will take place in the seminar room on the basement level and you can use a passenger lift to all floors of the building.

You can store pushchairs in the seminar room for the whole event.

Toilets are located just outside the seminar room on the basement level, including baby changing facilities within the accessible and gender-neutral toilet.

We want to make it as easy as possible for all to attend, so please get in touch if you have any access needs that you would like to discuss before the workshop.
