Workshops for museums

Frequently Asked Questions about our workshops

Here are the answers to a number of frequently asked questions and queries we receive about our workshops.

What is the aim of a workshop?

The aim of a workshop varies, depending on the target audience. Our museum workshops tend to be used as an activity to attract new visitors and complement a particular exhibition or collection. School workshops can be used to reinforce new topics with a hands-on activity, or as a wellbeing exercise.

Can you run a custom workshop?

Yes, we’re happy to discuss workshops to cover a topic we don’t currently cover: please get in touch!

What does a workshop cost?

Workshop costs vary depending on your dates, and the type of workshop. Please contact us to discuss your workshop booking.

What is included in workshop fees?

Workshop costs include equipment hire (where required), a facilitator (or two, where required), and our travel costs to come to your school or museum.

Are you covered by Public Liability Insurance?

Yes, all of our workshop facilitators are covered by Public Liability Insurance (PLI) policies, with a cover level of £5 million.

Are your workshop facilitators DBS checked?

Yes, our facilitators all have recent (from the past 15 months) DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) checks. These were previously known as CRB checks. These are available on request.
