Past Event


This event was on Sat 12 Mar, 12pm-4pm

Enjoy an afternoon of creative fun with your family, inspired by the Gallery’s current exhibitions.

The major show Electronic Superhighway (2016-1966) explores how the Internet is changing art. Delve into digital technology, art and ideas with artist Chloe Cooper. Choose a scenario, build props and make short films to take home.

Inspired by the display Intellectual Barbarians: The Kibbo Kift Kindred, get crafty with artist Rebecca Davies. Create your own outfits like the colourful costumes worn by the group. Accompanied by a lively soundtrack of rhythm and beats – dancing is welcome!

This event is suitable for all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Booking advised but drop-in welcome.
