Every weekend we’ll be running creative workshops for families, inspired by ideas and artwork from the four different rooms in the Turner Contemporary Open.

Have a go at weaving using a peg loom, make a photo collage of yourself, write poetry on ceramics, and invent your own gallery gadget to experience the art around you in new ways.  Workshop activities will alternate each weekend – see details below.

During holidays workshops will be running from Wednesday – Sunday.
