Join us for regular weekend family workshops, where we invite families to be creative and learn together, alongside artists, illustrators and designers. Explore Somerset House and our exhibitions and displays though an exciting range of activities, from painting and model-making to fashion design and animation. Each workshop is designed to inspire and encourage creative discovery, and spark fresh activities to try at home.

Here's what people have been saying about our workshops:
