Children’s Activity Days

Children’s Activities.


During the holidays we run different art and craft activities for children.


These activities are run in the Education Centre.

Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult. 

There are 2 sessions each day.

Morning 10.00-11.30

Afternoon 13.00-14.30

Places are limited and must be booked.

All materials will be provided.

Please wear old clothes (we will be using paint and glue), bring an apron and a box to take your treasures home in.


*Please note that the booking system cuts off at midnight. If you want to book the morning of the activity please call the Museum to check if there is availability.*

*You may need to book one day at a time. The system does not always like you making multiple bookings.

February Half-Term

Tuesday 13th February – Decoupage Jars.

Children will use tissue paper or napkins to decoupage glass jars.

These jars can then be used as a pencil pot, vase, store treasures or as decoration on the windowsill.




Wednesday 14th February – Wire Butterfly and Fabric Flower. 

Children will be shown how to make a wire butterfly. We will then use a resin to paint the wings – creating a stained glass effect.

Children will also make a fabric flower, by putting scraps of material onto a polystyrene ball.




Thursday 15th February – Under the Sea Watercolour Painting. 

Children will be taught different water colour techniques. They will then draw around a template and paint their creature and use a splatter effect for the background.




Friday 16th February – Abstract Batik.

A favourite of ours. Children will be taught how to use a jaunting to draw their design using hot wax. They will then use fabric paints to paint their pictures



We look forward to seeing you for our Half-Term Activities.


We will be running children’s activities in the Easter holidays. Please keep an eye on the website for more information.
