v+A drop in

FAMILY EVENT: Explore the V&A’s collections through drawing and making activities. Choose a challenge, hunt for ideas in the galleries then create and make your own designs as a family – from fantasy doors to fancy hats.

Sunday 20 & 27 January – New Crazy Costumes

Albert the Alien needs a crazy costume. Read the story of Albert landing on earth and then explore the Museum to find objects for his costume. Children can draw a chair for a hat or see an interesting shape on a sculpture that would make a great cloak. Then back in the studio they can create an illustration of Albert’s costume.

This activity has been designed with Hayley Neubauer Costume Design for Film Resident at the V&A.

Drop in Design takes place on Sundays except during the school holidays when a variety of other activities take place. See the Family Art Fun Calendar for details.


From this Sunday for 3 weeks, we are launching new Drop in Design sessions where families can choose a challenge, look for ideas in the galleries and then create their own designs, from fantasy doors to fancy hats.
