Spring Kids’ Print-Making Workshop

Drop in on Saturday 6th April from 2.30pm–4.30pm
We are welcoming families for a free art session for children aged 4+.

‘Knock, knock! Spring is here!’ said the woodpecker waking up the trees on Wimbledon Common.

Have you seen the incredible cherry blossoms in front of Wimbledon Station? Have you said hello to any butterflies and moths? Have you met the badgers or even the Wombles? What a busy season!

Did you know that Wimbledon Museum has an album of pressed plants created by an 11-year-old in 1894 and a nature diary with watercolours by a 14-year-old in 1922?

Make your own spring nature diary! Come to the Museum on April 6th and discover the wildlife on display! Get inspired and learn about the fun, colourful, and creative, print-making technique you can use to create your very own diary.
