Fun with costume (dementia friendly)

  • Workshop
  • Community & access groups

Join us at the Portrait Gallery for fun, creative workshops exploring costume. Relax with a cup of tea and some cake and try your hand at simple, creative activities.

Participants will be invited to explore a selection of striking portraits, handle our beautiful, tactile embroidery samples and using a simple technique to stencil onto velvet, create their own unique artwork to take away with them.

These workshops are suitable for older participants, including those with dementia. The emphasis is on enjoyment and experimentation - no art experience necessary!
