As part of the Totally Thames Source to Sea River Relay, a weekend of family friendly fun with modelling, sketching and making activities for all. The sessions are inspired by the journey of the Thames relay bottle which has been filled with water at the Thames’s source and passed downstream by walkers, swimmers, rowers, sailors and many others, now arriving at the Design Museum before continuing on its journey to the sea.

Saturday 11 – 4pm: Workshops throughout the day with ‘Make, Do and Draw’. Explore the design of bottles and the life of the river through different techniques of making, crafting and drawing – all suitable for families and adult visitors.

Sunday 2pm – 3pm: Each month the museum works with an an expert tutor to lead you through a range of drawing activities in the Design Museum’s exhibitions, from architectural drawing to studies of objects in the collection. In September we’ll be focusing on the Thames.
