Why did people wear armour? What can we learn about people from what they wear? And what links armour and printmaking?

Find out in this hands-on workshop. Through object handling, observation and discussion, your class will discover the shapes and patterns on display in their amazing armouries. In the studio, students will explore and express their own identity through creating a bespoke block-printed design.

Please note 4 weeks’ advance booking required.
