Family Craft Saturdays

Join our volunteer team on Saturday afternoons for family craft activities inspired by the Museum’s collections.

Please note: There will be no Family Craft Saturdays on 17 June.

Learn about some of the 350,000 objects in the Horniman’s collections, and discover more about music, nature, wildlife, and the world around us.

Get stuck into some crafts and have fun with our wonderful volunteers at these free, drop-in sessions.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.


Butterfly feeder

Animals like birds, bees, butterflies pollinate plants and are responsible for bringing us one out of every three bites of food. Join this workshop on 10 June and discover how to make a butterfly feeder.

On 10 June the session will run 1pm – 3pm.

Windrush Day

Caribbean culture in the UK has contributed to a legacy of an inestimable value and carnival is a huge part of that. On 24 June celebrate Windrush Day by creating carnival accessories inspired by Caribbean carnival costumes from our collection.
