Museum of Printing Kit
We unlock the historic treasures in the Museum of Printing and make original artefacts available to bring into schools and centers to investigate and create art with.
This outreach program is offered to children and students of all ages where in which an arts educator brings a Museum of Printing kit to a school or center making these objects available to both use in an art making activity and investigate historically.
Each venue will tailor their Museum of Printing Kit to their own needs. Alongside the museum objects will be an education kit with worksheets for students to follow on with after the workshop. Each session will run for 1.5 hours involving an informative investigation into the artefacts and an artmaking activity to follow. Please discuss with our education officer if your venue wishes to loan the items for a longer period of time.
