ART AND CRAFT ACTIVITIES
These activities can be adapted to suit a wide range of ages and abilities. Sessions can also be enhanced and extended in length and complexity for more advanced learners. Please contact the Learning Officer directly if you would like to discuss any of these activities in more detail.
In this workshop pupils will be able to decorate a pre-printed acrylic suncatcher to display in a window at home or at school. This session is most suitable for EYFS and KS1.
£2 per pupil (minimum charge £30)
Pupils will have time to explore the Museum and collect details and motifs from the panels on display. They will then be supported to turn these into a design for a final piece, which they will transfer onto either acrylic or glass using paints and pens. This session is suitable for KS1 and beyond.
1 hour and 30 minutes
£3.50 per pupil if painting onto acrylic; £4.50 per pupil if painting onto glass (minimum charge £35)
Pupils will learn how to cut glass and then apply this skill to producing their own fused glass artwork. Pupils will work with flat glass, frit (ground glass), noodles, and stringers, which can be layered to produce a range of visual effects. Glass will be kiln-fired and available for collection approximately one week after your visit. This session is most suitable for KS2 and beyond, but can be adapted to accommodate KS1 learners.
£10 per pupil (minimum charge £100)
