Ahoy Matey! In July, set sail for an art adventure as we voyage through the galleries in search of boats and ships! Then go below deck and make your own creations inspired by the deep blue sea including sea faring flag collages, origami paper boats, printmaking and wax-resist sea creatures.

Every Saturday and Sunday! Recommended for children of all ages and their families. No registration required – drop-in, make, and take a fantastic piece of art home with you!
