About

Join us at the Gallery of Modern Art for a friendly and accessible dementia-friendly workshop inspired by the exhibition Andy Warhol and Eduardo Paolozzi | I want to be a machine. Over a cup of tea and cake, enjoy exploring tactile materials of different shapes and sizes and create a piece of abstract sculpture. Part of the Luminate Festival 2019.

Suitable for community groups and care homes. Max 8 participants and any number of staff. Booking essential.

There is free disabled parking at the Gallery of Modern Art and there is a full Changing Places facility in the carpark of MOD ONE.
