Animal Magic - Magnet-making Workshop

About the workshop

Join us on Saturday 2nd December for a crafty workshop, creating salt dough magnets.

Using the animals that inspired EcologyNOW as a starting point, children will focus on creating their very own fridge magnet to take home.
Templates will be provided as visual aids along with readymade salt dough in varied colours for the children to make their fridge magnets.

Recommended for ages 3+. Adult supervision is required.


About the artist

Pamela Schilderman is a Dutch/Brazilian artist whose work is influenced by science. She creates sculptures, drawings and paintings using traditional and unusual materials.

For the past two years she has been working with the University of Birmingham and the Lapworth Museum of Geology on EcologyNOW, a project about animal conservation. You can see her art as you follow the trail round the museum; then have your say and vote whether humans are the most important species on earth today?


This workshop is free to attend but a ticket is required for each workshop participator. There will be a maximum of 20 tickets available for each session.

Tickets are available on the eventbrite page here: Animal Magic - Magnet Making Workshop Tickets
