Fridays are Drawbots day through the summer holiday, so come along and make a robot! This event is suitable for ages 6 plus. It is hands on, fun and creative.

Drawbots are special robots, with pens for legs that draw on the paper for you. Watch them wiggle, dance and spin around making awesome art for you.

With all parts provided, we’ll show you how to assemble your own individual Drawbot. 

Decorate to your design then sit back and watch the picture it makes. When you’ve finished, take your picture and robot home with you.

This session takes place every Friday from 28th July to 1st Sept, from 11am - 1pm and 2pm - 4pm.

Explore the art around you to see other robots in I Want! I Want!  And we recommend a trip to Thinktank and see the other robots there too!

Pre-booking recommended as places are limited.

Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.
