Floating Forms: Family Mobile Making

What shapes and colours can you see around you?

Inspired by joyful and abstract artworks in our collection, join Becca Randle, from the Barber’s Learning team, to explore vibrant colours and exciting shapes before making a joyful mobile to hang in your window.

We’ll discover how artists and sculptors use shapes and colours – and how you can too!

We require an adult to be present with all children throughout the workshop. The booking link and more information will be sent to you the week before the workshop.
