On the last Saturday of every month join us online  for fun activities for families to make and do together inspired by the William Morris Gallery collection.  Watch a short film on how to do the activity demonstrated by the artists and download full instructions on our illustrated information sheets on our Learning at Home page

This month we are finding out about Mermaids and their fishy companions. We are inspired by Morris's and Burne Jones Mermaid textile design, to be found in the current exhibtion  about design drawings Work in Progress.

Storyteller Wendy Shearer will tell tales of mysterious merfolk from the Carribean and around the world, while artist Esther Neslen will show you how to craft a moving mer-tail - fishy scales and all!

You can watch the film from 1pm on William Morris Gallery's Facebook page, tell us what you think in the comments section and share pictures of your artwork at #WMGfamilies.  

We hope you enjoy!
