Easter Holidays Family Workshops: Welcome to the Circus!

Tue 3 & Tue 10 Apr 2018, 10am–2pm

We celebrate all things Circus in our two Easter Holiday Family Workshops! Join us for hands-on making activities linked to our forthcoming exhibition Circus: Performers, Politics and Pop Culture.

Egg Extravaganza
Tue 3 Apr, 10-2pm, 4th Floor Workshop

Help us to get ready for our next Main Gallery exhibition, ‘Circus: Performers, Politics and Pop Culture’ by designing your own unique Clown Egg. We will be photographing everyone’s creations to make an ‘NCCD Egg Register’. This will be printed in a book to be displayed as part of the upcoming exhibition, inspired by Luke Stephenson’s ‘The Clown Egg Register’. 

Warning: no two Clown Eggs can look the same! Join Emma for an Egg Extravaganza Workshop on Tuesday, or pop in for the rest of the week (while eggs last!) to design your Clown Egg.

Poster Pop
Tue 10 Apr, 10 -2pm, 4th Floor Workshop

As we look ahead to celebrating 250 years of Circus, help us to mark the occasion by designing your own hand illustrated beautiful posters inspired by the circus tradition. Drop into our workshop on Tuesday and use some really nice pens! Or design your own throughout the rest of the week in the gallery and share with us on social media using the hashtag #250yearsofcircus.

Over the Easter Holidays there will also be free Easter Trails and Activities linked to our current exhibitions.
