Youth Groups

Youth groups at the Geffrye

(c) Geffrye Museum

We offer youth groups and organisations one-off art, craft, cookery, writing, sound and performance sessions as well as longer-term creative projects. These are suitable for young people aged 11-24 and can be tailored to suit the groups' interests and needs. Sessions take place in the evenings, at weekends and during school holidays. They are inspired by the museum’s collection and can be delivered at the Geffrye or as outreach to the young people’s environment.

We have recently delivered craft and baking sessions to Hackney Ark, Laburnam Boat Club and Centrepoint. Recent projects have included a film-making project with New Horizon Youth Centre, where young people devised and filmed a documentary about the history of tea and how the social habits associated with tea drinking have changed through the centuries. Young people from Hackney Quest also worked with staff from the museum and the London College of Fashion to design and create accessories and costumes as part of a fashion parade projects.

All workshops and projects are free but are subject to staff and funding availability.
