The School Trip Community White Logo


This workshop is tailored to your topic or students’ interests; with over 3,000 objects in their unique Handling Collection, their Learning Officers will select a variety of artefacts for your students to sketch and photograph.

From traditional art and textiles from around the world to natural forms, students will have a fantastic opportunity to develop their still life sketching skills and form ideas and concepts around their own work. Students will have the chance to handle and closely study the objects, repositioning and arranging them as they choose, whilst exploring new textures and forms and being inspired by the stories behind them.

Please bring your sketchbooks and pencils with you.

This session is not available on a Tuesday.

About Horniman Museum and Gardens.

Matilda The Musical Logo

The Horniman connects us all with global cultures and the natural environment, encouraging us to shape a positive future for the world we all share.

Learn about their world-class collections and discover information about world cultures, music, different species and the natural environment we all share.

There is more that unites us than divides us, and this can clearly be seen when looking at the 350,000 or so objects in the Horniman collections.
