Inspired by Soane
The Online Education Gallery is a place to show work by those who have been inspired by the Museum. If your class, family or group has visited the Museum and produced stunning work as a result, why not display their work here?
Please contact the Head of Education for more details on how to submit works for display.
Here you’ll find a selection of images from our family drop-in events which run during the school holidays. Activities have included making prints of the London skyline, Egyptian masks and Soanean ceramics!
In May 2014 the Soane’s afterschool club, The Building Explorers, visited the 1A Arts clay studio to sculpt their own interpretations of some of the most iconic items in Sir John Soane’s collection. The Building Explorers had lots of fun making colourful masks, statues and decorative plaques to display in their own homes.
In July 2009, pupils from three schools in Waltham Forest took part in a week-long summer school. Pupils visited Sir John Soane's Museum to see the famous 'A Rake's Progress' by William Hogarth.
Pupils identified as 'Gifted and Talented' took part in a day-long workshop in their school. The group was introduced to Hogarth's 'A Rake's Progress' and then worked in pairs to create an updated version of the eight original paintings in a manga style. The pupils worked with Rob Deas, a Manga Artist based in North Lincolnshire.
