Half Term Fun in crafts and clay at Hove Museum

This is a legacy story from an earlier version of our website. It may contain some formatting issues and broken links.

Thanks to all those that came to the February half term creative workshops. We had such a lovely time that I thought I’d share the children’s work.

If you came – see if you can spot your artwork below. If you didn’t – here’s a taste of what happened. Our theme was inspired by the Cultural Icons exhibition.

The children used a wide range of art and craft materials to create their own characters in these popular workshops that were run by Nadya Derungs.

At these events we collected children’s views to find out what they have enjoyed and what they would like to do in the future at the museum. Thank you to the fifty-five children (aged 3-12) and their parents – your views will help us plan future events.

Smiley faces everywhere for these events!

Towards the end of half term, local potter Adam Campbell ran a clay mask-making workshop at the museum. Children and their parents had a relaxing morning of creativity – here’s what was made…

Children’s craft events are held throughout the year and we hope to see you soon for another great day.
