Creative Workshops

3D model of Golden Arrow

The National Motor Museum is pleased to announce a series of creative workshops inspired by the Art Deco styled Golden Arrow. Through the workshops students can explore a range of creative mediums to design and make a unique piece to take home.

These taster days are suitable for all abilities and will give participants an opportunity to explore the collections of the National Motor Museum in a new and exciting way. Come and join us for a relaxed, informal day of fun and creativity.

As the workshops are part of a grant-funded project we are able to offer these workshops at a discounted rate of £40 per workshop including materials.

  • Automaton – join Fi Henshall for a day exploring the world of clockwork and automated models.
  • Stained and Fused Glass – Rachel Russell will guide you through using a variety of techniques and coloured glass to design and make an original piece to display in either your home or garden.
  • Linocut printing – Deborah Richards will demonstrate and guide students to design, cut and print linocuts.
  • Felt making – you will have an opportunity to explore both wet and dry felt-making techniques to create a dimensional piece of their choice.

All workshops will take place onsite (10am – 4.30) and will include all materials. Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
