NEW: one on-demand session available to request in April or July (see below for details).

Join us for an eclectic mix of art and science through gallery, creative and discursive activities as we explore the life of Henry Wellcome.

We will 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, we will then collaborate in our Studio to create a contemporary response to Henry Wellcome's world.
