Open 10:30–5:00, Tuesday – Saturday
The hand in art is the focus for Julie Duhy in this week’s Children’s Workshop, which has a friendly warning of some mess (back garden would be a good place to do this) and time. It took Julie herself 5 days! Warm weather will help!
In our Collection is a work by an artist called William Mulready on ivory – Miniature of the artist’s hand – and this has been the trigger for Julie, both considering materials – a very interesting and fun process of papier-mãché, and the idea of construction, and the hand in the history of art.

If you’re working with younger children, view the video in advance to help prepare yourself. It is shorter than a real time workshop which would normally be 1 hour 30 minutes, but you can stop and start the video at stages so that children can take part slowly and reflectively with the session.
