What Can You See Deep in the Sea at Seven Stories


Join Polish children’s book author and illustrator Piotr Karski to discover how amazing the ocean really is and draw by torchlight in this playful and creative workshop! Why not become a whale? An octopus? Or build a deep sea submarine and discover new species from the darkest depths of the sea.

Your artwork will help to influence a variety of sea creature sculptures Piotr is making here at Seven Stories throughout autumn and there will be opportunities to see your work exhibited alongside the final sculptures!

Morning workshops are aimed at children aged 4 - 7 and their families. Afternoon workshops are aimed at children 8+ and their families.

Guide Prices

Tickets are £3. No general admission required.
