Canterbury Museums & Galleries have been delivering fun and inspiring schools workshops for over 20 years, bringing subjects to life as part of a rich, cross-curricular experience.

Learning is at the heart of what we do and our activities are designed to stimulate curiosity, imagination and creativity.

Booking a Schools Workshop with us gives your pupils the unique opportunity to learn alongside a collection of over 5,000 inspirational artefacts and works of art.

Your class or group can handle real artefacts whilst developing a range of investigative, enquiry-based learning skills.

Our dedicated Learning team can tailor workshops to your needs, so whether you are investigating the Ancient Egyptians, exploring art or looking to discover some incredible collections from around the globe, there is bound to be a workshop to suit your classroom needs...

*New Workshops for October 2016*

We are offering workshops to coincide with our upcoming Special Exhibition, Grayson Perry: The Vanity of Small Differences, for KS1-5 schools groups.

Using the tapestries on display in our temporary exhibition schools groups can investigate their identity, location and links with the world. Tied to the PSHE, Art and Art History curriculum, this is a great opportunity to engage with this fascinating and important contemporary artist, which inspires questions and debate at all ages.

Workshops will be available from Saturday 8 October to Sunday 4 December.
