11.30am - 12.15pm: All family visitors (fully booked)

The Grant Museum has a vast collection of species, including a number of animals which are now extinct. These stories are important to tell and even more important to engage with. 

Join us for a puppet-making workshop with artist Oliver Cloke. This workshop invites families to explore extinction and survival, looking at why extinction has happened, and how we can prevent further extinction of species due to climate change.

Through discussion, stories and craft materials, this workshop will allow you to design animals that can protect themselves against the various threats that may be facing endangered species today. You will be able to produce your very own puppet animal that tells its own survival story.

This workshop is suitable for ages 6+ but young children will need adult help. We will have colouring sheets available for younger children.

If you would like to beat the crowds, the first event is open exclusively for our Family Members. The Museum will be open to Family Members from 10.00am.
Book Family Members' tickets for 10.15-11.00am

The second event, open to all family visitors, is now fully booked.
