We encourage families, schools and groups to visit the Radical Craft exhibition.

Various materials are provided to help you discover more about the artists, their artwork and the exhibition themes. You can pick up a free family activity guide in the exhibition or download it here. You can also download the teacher’s pack.

There are illustrated books available to read in the exhibition and a handling table where you can touch and explore materials and techniques used by Linda Bell, Andrew Omoding and Erkki Pekkarinen.
