Get creative in Kids on Deck – a fun filled workshop space with art making and experiments for primary school aged children and their carers.

Get creative in Kids on Deck!

Be inspired by our current exhibitions as you enjoy art-making and experiments with your family.

Sundays in term 1

Be inspired by our wondrous ocean planet as you make recycled foam into boats and experiment with buoyancy, fashion a creature-feature hat or design your own stamps.

Autumn school holidays

Delve into the history of seafarers and celestial navigation all around the world. Create your own clock block-prints or silk-screen prints, experiment with starry slime, and design a sculptural ship model or a clever navigational instrument.
