Each year Weston Museum plays host to a number of events which provide opportunities for both enthusiasts and families to enjoy a great day out.
Get inspired by our exhibition on Punch and Judy and make your own puppet to take away and create your own shows with! Join in with a craft workshop where there will be loads of materials to use and a puppetry artist on hand to show you how to make your own fantastic puppet.
Workshops last for 1.5 hours and available slot timings are:
- 10.30 – 12
- 12.30 – 2
- 2.30 – 4
Activities are suitable for children aged 4-10, smaller craft materials mean that the workshops are not suitable for children aged 3 or younger. We have regular toddler groups for them instead, run on a monthly basis.
Tickets cost £5 per child. Parents do not need to purchase a ticket for themselves, they can either stay with the child (advisable for younger children) or stay in the museum cafe, which is within eye line and earshot of the Learning Space and enjoy a cuppa whilst their children enjoy some craft. To book a place please call the museum on 01934 621028 or drop in. Places need to be booked in advance as numbers are limited and we ask for payment at the time of booking, which you can pay in cash or on card if you drop in or you can pay by card over the phone.
Working with collage, paint and drawing materials, Ros Cuthbert RWA will use simple visual games to stimulate your imagination and inspire creativity. The morning will involve creating several quick collage paintings and after lunch you will create one single piece of collage artwork.
Ros Cuthbert RWA will provide plenty of help and individual guidance. Places need to be booked in advance due to limited places. Please call the Museum 01934- 621028
