Inspired by the fascinating Fanciful Figures temporary exhibition, join us for a family drop-in workshop making Georgian silhouettes.

These were a popular form of affordable portraiture in the Georgian era, a delicate craft that required a deft hand and a creative eye.

Event information

These workshops are free to attend, you can simply drop-in on the day as part of your visit to the museum.

Children must be accompanied by an adult. Activities are aimed at children aged 4+yrs but younger siblings are very welcome.

Please note this workshop will take place in the Art Room in the basement of no. 14. There is limited space in the room and therefore we may need to ask families to join our waiting list on the day.

The stairs down to the Art Room are narrow and not suitable for buggies, which can be left outside. There is a baby change onsite. If you require wheelchair access, please get in touch with in advance of your visit and we can arrange this for you.
