Join artists Damien Robinson and Mónica Rivas to build your dream city. A workshop especially designed for deaf families.

Two workshops:

  • Workshop 1: 11.00 – 12.30
  • Workshop 2: 13.30 – 15.00

If you could build your own city, what buildings would you create? A park made of sweet treats, a house with trampolines or a road through the clouds.

Help us create a city based on your imagination. We will use drawing and collage, exploring different textures, shapes and colour to build it. Then play with light to create shadows as your city comes alive.

Suitable for ages 5+ (one ticket per person) | British Sign Language interpretation will be provided

In collaboration with Open City, the charity dedicated to making London and its architecture more open and accessible.
