Learn the basics of Meccano and create a moving model to take home.
This event is ideal for a parent/grandparent/adult carer and child who want to work together on a single model but is also suitable for individual adults who want to create. The workshop will be run by experienced facilitators Kathleen and Harry who will lead you in making a small moving model to take home with you.
We advise that the workshop is for children 11 and over a due to the complex nature of Meccano building and all children must be accompanied by an adult.
There are two sessions available. Each session is 2 hours long.
Session costs £5 per adult with one child free per adult place (if required) and does not include entry to the museum (tickets must be purchased in order to enter the workshop. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times and one model will be made per adult/child pair or per adult if no child place is required.
The workshops are happening at the following times:

Session 2- 1.30pm – 3.30pm
