About this event

Our Hands on Base is open on Saturdays mornings for fun sessions that will explore a different theme every week using objects from our handling collection. Themes will include animals, costumes, masks, music and toys to name just a few.

Take part in a series of challenges that could have you trying on clothes, playing music, drawing and of course exploring objects. 

Drop in anytime between 11am to 12.30pm. Sessions are mainly aimed at families with children but everyone is welcome.
