Is the fridge door covered in your children's artwork? Is the creativity so prolific that you no longer have enough fridge magnets (or door space) to pin them up? Do you dread their return home from art class, wondering where to put their next wondrous creation?

Perhaps the answer is a different sort of art class. Every school holiday, the Geffrye Museum runs free workshops for 5 - 16 year olds and, this summer, the theme is 'Designer Homes and Gardens'. Three weeks of more fun creativity. Doesn't that mean three more weeks of fridge art, you ask?

Nope, the Geffrye Museum are offering activities far more exciting and useful than a simple drawing. So instead of buying another fridge, why not take them for some free holiday workshops ?

There are two different classes a day (Tuesday - Friday); unless stated otherwise, classes are suitable for all ages. Any child under eleven must be accompanied by an adult.
