Collection Creature with artist Louise Bird

Richard Glynn Vivian went on many travels around the world and bought lots of works of art which make up the art gallery’s collection.

In this workshop, help us make a new specimen for the Glynn Vivian collection, using textiles and different materials to create a weird and wonderful creature.

Knit, stitch and weave to build an enormous work of art, or make smaller creations to take home.

Family Dress Up and Draw Day with artist Mary Hayman

Inspired by Richard Glynn Vivian’s African travel album and sketch books, come and draw (and paint) your mum, dad, sister, brother or friend, wearing colourful patterned clothes from West Africa.

Set the scene and add your own exotic background to take away a family portrait with a difference.

All materials provided, or bring your own sketch if you have one.
