Spend your half term with us and take part in either one or two action packed days playing games, getting messy with arts and craft activities and creating colourful stories and characters. Both days will be a special mix of imaginative fun incorporating the themes of the James Capper exhibition which features large and colourful hydraulic sculptures with similarities to a range of animals and insects. Discover how an insect moves, make an animal costume or become your own moving sculpture! Led by experienced artist educators Dorcas Casey and Laura Street, MAKE is sure to be the highlight of your half term.
