Winter & New Year Activities
cutty sark

It's time for those crafty kids of yours to get crafty. The Cutty Sark in Greenwich has several arts & crafts workshops over January and February for children to get stuck into - literally.

5th January

Snug Sea Creatures

The Cutty Sark was a British clipper ship that faced all sorts of conditions such as icebergs and snow. It used to travel through them with cargoes of wool from Australia. Now you can stay warm aboard the clipper by making wooly sock puppets. The workshops are free and run at 11am-1pm & 2pm-4pm.

6th January

Winter Warmers

Keeping with the winter theme, between the time of 11am-1pm & 2pm-4pm, this free workshop is all about making warm pom-pom ear muffs.

2nd February

Trading Tales

Okay, not art & crafty, but still fun. A 45 minute session with stories about dragons, tea, and China. Times are 12pm, 2.30pm, & 3.30pm.

2nd-3rd February

Tea Hats

Learn how tea is made, and make your own farmers' tea hat. Times are 11.30am-1.30pm or 2pm-4pm.

18th-19th February

Celebrate the Chinese New Year by making lanterns. Times are 11am-1pm or 2pm-4pm.

20th-21st February

New Year Fans

Learn about the history of Chinese fans and make your own to take home. Times are 11am-1pm or 2pm-4pm.

22nd-23rd February

Animal Masks

Make animal masks that match the year you were born on the Chinese calendar, to parade and dance in. Times are 11am-1pm or 2pm-4pm.

23rd February

Chinese New Year Celebrations

Celebrate the Chinese New Year between 11am-4pm with a day of music, workshops, performances, and learn about how sea trade influenced relationships between Asia and Britain.

Tea Tasting

Try some herbal blends and learn about the history behind Chinese tea. Open all day.

The workshops are free, but admittance to Cutty Sark costs 16 for adults, 9 for 5-15 year olds. Under 5s go free.
