Tremendous Traces
Imagine you could transform your most treasured possessions into giant works of art… in this playful family workshop, you can! Create a huge pocket mirror, a titanic set of keys, or even a jumbo stray coin, then display your large-scale cardboard sculptures in a group exhibition. Led by artist Laura X Carle.

Future Makers
How would you build a future that makes everyone feel welcome? From three-storey treehouses to community climbing frames, build spaces for your imagined future using a range of recycled materials. Then come together to build connections with other creations. Led by artist Harriet Hill.
