Crochet Workshop and Tour
Join us for an extraordinary crochet workshop led by the designers from TOFT.
Calling all crafters: take part in a workshop led by crochet experts TOFT, then tour the Museum's behind-the-scenes tank room.
In this unique workshop you will use Kerry Lord's new mini kit to make your own version of Archie, the 8.62-metre-long giant squid specimen at the Museum - you'll get to meet Archie on your tour.
You will be given everything you need to make your squid: wool, stuffing, crochet hook, sewing-up accessories and pattern, plus all the expert tuition you'll need to complete your craft.
You will learn how to read a crochet pattern, start and finish each body part, and sew them all together. The TOFT team will be on-hand for any troubleshooting.
Light refreshments are also included in the workshop.
Your 15-minute tour of the tank room will be guided by one of our science educators. You'll meet Archie and see other weird and wonderful specimens.
