Family workshop - fantastical cities

Become an architect of the future and build your own spectacular city collage!

Join artist Fiona Cullinan to playfully imagine the city of your dreams inspired by our print bay display The Architecture of Topography, then cut, rip and stick to create strange and surreal artworks. This workshop includes a guided exploration of this display, before bringing your city to life by experimenting with paper techniques. Creative collaboration as a family will be encouraged!
