BSL Family Workshop: Picture Vision with Christopher Sacre

Delivered in both British Sign Language and spoken English; both hearing and Deaf families welcome.

When, Where

Explore our galleries and learn new illustration techniques using both British Sign Language (BSL) and spoken English with artist and educator Christopher Sacre.

Draw, create and socialise with other families in this hands-on workshop tailored for children aged 5-10 and their parents and carers. Both hearing and Deaf families are welcome.

In this month’s workshop, we’ll be collaborating to create a vision of your future projected on the wall, inspired by Designed in Cuba: Cold War Graphics. Your ticket includes entry to this and other current exhibitions.

This family illustration workshop is for 5-10 year olds and their parents and carers.

Materials are provided.
