Make A Flapping Seagull Puppet Workshop and Museum Entry:

Tuesday 13th August 10am- 2pm.

In this workshop led by Puppetmaker Holly Miller you will work with cardboard, newspaper and tape to create your very own flapping seagull.  Discover a variety of different techniques used to make, shape and form the materials into your flapping seagull. You’ll name your seagull, draw what they like to eat and practice your seagull call!  Then, after a provided lunch of freshly made pizza and fruit, explore the museum for an hour. Our 11 galleries are full of hands-on activities and perfect for families!  

This exciting children’s workshop is aimed at children aged 6 to 16 yrs old and for all abilities. It is £20 for those not eligible for a funded place. This price includes the workshop, some scrumptious pizza from Piccolo Mondo and access to the museum for part of the morning.
