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 at The Prince Philip Maritime Collections Centre as we build a community of makers and menders!
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.

Dive into a world of creative self-discovery at this month's Make, do and maintain session. Join artist/poet Joel Sydenham for a unique artistic journey, where you will create your own seascape on canvas, inspired by the paintings of marine artist, John Everett.
You will have time to experiment with colours and textures as you develop your painting techniques, and a chance for self-reflection. By the end of the session, you will have infused your emotions, experiences and individuality into your seascapes, bringing it to life! As it's also the holiday season, why not give the gift of art to your loved ones?
For this session all supplies are provided.

Compasses have been crucial in maritime history as they enabled mariners to know the direction in which they were sailing. Today, compasses continue to hold significance as one of the most important navigational instruments, guiding not only those at sea but also on land too.
Join facilitator Lucy-Anne for an inspired workshop, decorating your own tote bag with a compass design as your starting point. Annotate your tote with places that shape your sense of home, origin and anywhere that mean something to you. These will then be yours to take away and accompany you on your future journeys.
This club is suitable for ages 7 and above.
All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
No experience is necessary—beginners and experts alike are welcome
Please note the event is free but there is a booking fee of £1.00.
