Take part in workshops designed and led by artists and families from the Door to Design project, and view their work in the Door to Design display. Supported by John Lyon’s Charity.

Making activities will be led by:
- Ceramic artists Alice Walton and Emily Stapleton-Jefferis in collaboration with Colville Primary School.

- Multi-disciplinary artists Bahbak Hashemi-Nezhad and Paulina Lenoir in collaboration with St Stephen's CofE Primary School.

- Textile artist Yemi Awosile in collaboration with Sir John Lillie Primary School.

‘Door to Design’ is a three-year school and families project supported by John Lyon’s Charity. Using the Museum’s Exhibition Road Quarter as inspiration, ‘Door to Design’ works with local primary school children to explore architecture and design. Each year, pupils, teachers and families from three schools will work alongside an architect, artist or designer to explore how the new entrance welcomes visitors and to inspire their own architectural designs and projects. Please visit the Door to Design display in the John Lyons Community Gallery (Sackler Centre for arts education) to see what the young designers have created.
