It's Family Day at the William Morris Gallery every Tuesday throughout August.

On the 2nd August we'll be thinking about the ways that Althea McNish used plants and flowers in her prints and then making our own 3D sculptural plants and flowers. Led by artist Delyth Taylor, these creations will have special purpose: they will become part of a story that Delyth will be telling, which explores Althea McNish's 'Golden Harvest' design and the theme of journeying. If the weather is good, storytelling will take place outside on the island in Lloyd Park.

We have both craft and storytelling sessions available to book - you can book for either or both (booking is required for both sessions - drop-ins for storytelling will be available if this takes place outside).

  • Craft sessions - 11.15am, 1pm, 2.45pm (30 minutes)
  • Storytelling sessions - 12pm, 1.45pm, 3.30pm (45 minutes)

Our craft activity is aimed at 6+ but all welcome. There will be toys for under 5s in our Honeysuckle room for families to engage with between sessions or if younger children need to get away (an adult must accompany).

Please book in advance and ensure that you book a ticket for each member of your group (adult tickets for 16+, child’s tickets for aged 15 and under)

While you’re at the Gallery, we also have a family trail to enjoy. Start by exploring the Gallery and special exhibition with Indigo the Bird. Then follow the trail on an adventure around our garden with Fafnir the Dragon. When you’ve completed it, claim your prize!
