Make at Tate Liverpool: Family WorkshopShekina Rose, Families Editor
This half term its time to get creative and attend a Make at Tate Liverpool: Family Workshop, running daily from 11am – 3pm, 27 May – 4 June. The workshops are free-to-attend and the perfect way to introduce children to the world of modern art, while encouraging their creativity and imagination through a hands-on, interactive approach.
Inspired by the art exhibitions in the museums, families will be invited to create their own special artwork to take home. Art forms include drawing and painting, and getting hands-on with arts and crafts. Children and adults alike will be inspired by playing and experimenting with different techniques and materials.
In addition to these engaging family workshops, there are so many other activities and resources for families available at Tate Liverpool, including tours of the galleries, children’s Explore and Draw sketchbooks and activity packs to keep the youngsters busy.
For the hungriest little ones, the museum also has a family-friendly cafe and restaurant with tasty snacks and meals, and delicious coffee (of course a necessity), as well as plenty of spaces throughout the galleries for kids to run around in circles (what they love doing most) , dance, play and explore while their grownups get to see the modern art on display.
A great trip out whatever the weather, here you can learn about art while having some creative fun with family and friends, in a comfortable and inspiring environment. Not only will you make memories, but you will also make something of your own that you can bring home and be proud of.
The Make at Tate: Family Workshop is drop-in, and you do not need to book. If you’re heading to the museum with very small children, the museum is buggy friendly and there’s lots of spaces to sit down and breast-feed.
While in Liverpool, why not visit the Maritime Museum and explore the Titanic exhibition and Little Liverpool gallery, a world of make-believe packed with fun activities for children under the age of six.
