Museum of Making Saturday Art Club

We invite young people aged 13-16 years with an interest in Craft and Making to apply and join this new art group.

Club members of the Museum of Making Saturday Art club will be inspired by the makers of the past, will connect with the makers of today and become a Maker of the future.

Club members will develop creative, technical, and practical skills aligned with Craft practice and careers. They will be introduced to materials and processes linked to Derby’s extensive Industrial and Creative Heritage.

With a focus on Ceramics, Textiles or wood our 15-week project will introduce traditional and innovative applications of these materials to make objects that matter to Young People and to society.

The club will also explore transferable skills developing agency, resilience, critical thinking, teamwork, communication, and social and cultural literacy.

Club members will have access to the Museum of Makings Studios and Workshop facilities and learn from talented local Makers, the staff at Derby Museums and will be supported by current creative students studying in Derby, who will inspire our next generation of makers in a safe and welcoming space.

Club members will also take part in national events including Masterclasses with leading industry professionals and the Summer Show, where Saturday Clubs nationwide exhibit their work in a public exhibition – all for free!
