August 9th and 23rd :
Take part in our hands-on, fabulous family art workshops run by professional artists Rachel Lindsey-Clark and Camilla Brendon. Will you try your hand at collage and create a serene canal scene or explore the canal critters that live beneath the water and make your own out of recycled materials? Or why not dip in and out of the two workshops to sample both across the day - the choice is yours.
August 16th :
Step inside our museum to experience an immersive 1 hour storytelling event by award winning author Sita Brahmachari as she brings to life her book, ‘When Secrets Set Sail.’ We have partnered with the National Literacy Trust and Get Islington Reading to bring this fabulous one-off event to life. We will hear the stories of the characters and learn more about the emotive and often overlooked history of the Ayah's who journeyed from India to the UK at the turn of the 20th century. There will be audience participation and chances to share stories as we step inside the world of 'When Secrets Set Sail'.
The storytelling will take place at 11am and 2pm.
