We are excited to offer two free family workshops in the Pervasive Media Studio - please join us for an opportunity to create musical instruments and strange machines using ordinary household items and craft materials. Get hands-on and let your creativity flow.

The workshops will be led by our incredibly talented dancer, engineer and Pervasive Media Studio Resident Shrouk El-Attar, alongside Tony Bhajam, Watershed’s Inclusion Producer, and Fion Wan, an independent Arts Producer.

Following the workshops, we'd like to extend an additional invitation for you to join Let’s Make Art. This brilliant artistic duo are offering an exciting programme of textile-based activities hosted by contemporary art centre Arnolfini in celebration of their current exhibition Threads. Drop in across the harbour to Arnolfini between 14:00 - 16:00 to try your hand at weaving with recycled t-shirt yarn or making a woven paper cup container.

Please note: These workshops are aimed at 8 - 13 year olds. To maximise space for children bookings are limited to one adult per booking.


Workshop 1: 29/08/23 - 10:45am-12:30pm

Workshop 2: 30/08/23 - 10:45 -12:30pm
