Join our community of makers at The Prince Philip Maritime Collections Centre.

Ever wondered how to keep your silver shining or how to mount a picture? Join us as we build a community of makers and menders.

This is a monthly club for all generations to come together and share skills. Our fantastic facilitator Lucy-Anne 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.

Cushion Making

A padded heart-shaped cushion in pink and white silk with a photograph of HMS 'Bonaventure' is mounted in the centre

Join us on this special Make, do and maintain session as we recycle left over materials to produce some comfy and unique cushion covers. Do you think you can make one as fancy as this one created by  George Ernest Cochrane, as a present for his fiancé in 1907.

Dont worry, if you dont think you have the skills to match this amazing sailor craft, as all abilities and  ages  are welcome to have a try in this fun hands on session.
