What you’ll do

In this five-hour session, your students will take part in gallery, creative and discursive activities as they explore the life of Henry Wellcome.

In an eclectic mix of art, science and history, they’ll uncover 19th-century collecting values and their relevance today by handling curious objects and through scientific debate. After a challenge-based activity in the galleries, they’ll collaborate in our Studio to create a contemporary response to Henry Wellcome’s world.

Who can come

This study day is recommended for groups of students in Year 9 and 10. We can accommodate up to 20–30 students, accompanied by staff at a ratio of 1:10.
