Is it just me or is this September a never-ending month?! Saturday is still September, but Sunday finally marks the beginning of October, which means that it is time to start preparing for Halloween! But before that, let's see what to do at the last (half) weekend of September:

Drop-in Workshop in the National Gallery - 1 Oct



Inspired by the collection and our exhibitions, these workshops are suitable for tiny tots (about 18 months) up to age 8. You can choose to stay for as long or as short a time as works for you. The space will be divided by age group and ability, and each child will be encouraged to create their own work on the week's theme. This week's workshop is inspired by the Joseph Walsh sculpture Magnus Modus.
