A Magical Summer at GoMA - Free family drop in workshops

About A Magical Summer at GoMA - Free family drop in workshops

This summer, as part of the European Championships 2018, GoMA will be collaborating with artist Monster Chetwynd. Taking inspiration from the project, GoMA will have a summer of magic with FREE family workshops with a supernatural theme. Come join us as we make powerful potions, create creepy creatures, potty plants and even make things fly or transform.

Drop-in - no ticket required.
Suitable for ages 5+.

Potion making
Mondays 2, 9, 16, 21, 23, 30 July and 6 August
Bubble, fizz and gloop! Create your own magical potions as we experiment with mysterious ingredients and marvel at chemical reactions. What colourful creation will be discovered?

Herbology
Tuesdays 3, 10, 17, 24, 31 July and 7 August
Learn about different plants and their effect in the magical and non-magical world. Grow, draw, and record them, creating your own herbarium (plant sketch book).

Levitation
Wednesdays 4, 11, 18, 25 July and 1, 8 August
Grab your wand and learn the magic (and science) behind levitation to make objects fly around!

Summoning
Thursdays 5, 12, 19, 26 July, and 2, 9 August
The magical world is full of fantastical creatures. Some of them are good, others less so. Join us for this enchanted workshop and have a go at summoning beasts, monsters, and other fairy tale creatures!

One last magical day
Saturday 11 August

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for A Magical Summer at GoMA - Free family drop in workshops are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
