Join us for a relaxed, family craft session in the Concert Hall, suitable for children of all ages.

Our May Half term Make & Take ‘Playful Pets’ is in celebration of the new delightful dog themed exhibition at The Mercer art Gallery in Harrogate.

Craft your very own 3D dog companion and choose from a variety of cuddly critters to bring to life with our concertina pet creations. Whether you’re a dog devotee, a cat connoisseur, or a fan of all things furry, there’s something for everyone at this paw-some event.

You’ll have the chance to get up close with some pet themed items from the Craven Museum Collection to spark your imagination!

You can visit the exhibition ‘We Think the World of You: People & Dogs Drawn Together’ by David Remfry at the Mercer Art Gallery in Harrogate until the 29th of September.
