This is a monthly club for all generations to come together, share skills and learn more about museum conservation and collections.

Our fantastic facilitators will lead the sessions, showcasing a new specific skill or technique which could be used to look after your own objects at home.

Come and meet like-minded peers in a friendly environment, work on exciting team and individual projects, and learn new skills from each other.

Workshops last for 90 minutes and feature activities and demonstrations. Refreshments are included.

Upcoming themes and skills

Ceramic Teacup and Saucer Decorating 

Saturday 6 April | 10.30am - 12.00pm

white ceramic teacup with a blue, red and green design on the front
Teacup from the Strathclyde Wreck

Be inspired by the Royal Museums Greenwich ceramics collection when decorating your very own teacup and saucer!

In this session we will be looking at typical Victorian crockery designs, going into the stores to see a teacup from the Strathclyde Wreck and using this as inspiration to create our own teacups and saucers. However, unlike the Strathclyde Wreck teacup, which was designed by an unknown maker, you'll put your own stamp on it and make it personal to you!

For this session all supplies are provided.
