Zodiac Zoo

Learn how to roll, loop, curl and twist paper in our animal themed paper quilling workshop to celebrate Chinese New Year. Create a beautiful picture with help from our artist and take your design home with you to decorate your room.

Get Dotty

Cutty Sark was a regular visitor to Australia during her sailing years. We will be celebrating this special relationship by making didgeridoos which we will be decorating with traditional aboriginal dot patterns. Once you have perfected your design, try to get a note out of your didgeridoo.

Write On!

Explorers told tales of their adventures by writing and illustrating their adventures. Take inspiration from the manuscripts and books of explorers to create your own illustrated story.

Emotion in the ocean

The sea has always captured the imagination of artists. In this practical art workshop, we explore the relationship between human emotion and the nature of the sea, and invite families to create their own emotive artworks to take home.

Robot Explorers!

Join us at the museum to make explorer/rescue robots using maker technologies and craft materials and create a robot creature to take home. (Families can take home the made object but not the electronics).
