As part of the Young People’s Programme, the Geffrye runs a regular programme of art, craft, design and digital sessions that take place in the evenings, at weekends and during school holidays, and are suitable for young people aged 11-24. Recent Workshops have included digital photography, making your own t-shirts, cushions and accessories and are suitable for 11-16 years olds. Creative Projects, for young people aged 14-24, provide opportunities to explore the collections, displays, gardens and core themes in more detail and usually result in displays or public performances. Projects have included film-making, making a soundscape for the museum, mosaic workshops, a drama project exploring the lives of the almshouse pensioners, working with storytellers to develop and lead tours of the museum and working as part of a team to create a large-scale sculpture inspired by natural habitats.

You can also help us make our exhibitions, projects, events, programme and building more youth-friendly by joining our Youth Advisory Panel.

We also run special workshops and projects for Youth Groups, and much much more! View our April - July 2014 programme of events.

All activities are free. Join our Young People’s Facebook page, receive email updates, or follow us on Twitter @GeffryeYouth to find out all the latest information.
