This is a day long set of activities designed to enable students to achieve Arts Award Discover. Sessions include finding out about different forms of art and creativity through the Saxon Life exhibition (from the Princess jewels to Saxon sagas), creating their own Saxon riddle poems and designing and making their own piece of jewelry, working with a professional craft-maker. Students will share their riddles and exhibit their jewels to complete their Arts Award portfolio.

The cost of these sessions includes:

  • A day of exciting, creative session at the Museum
  • An Arts Award folder per student
  • A certificate per student
  • A follow–up visit by the Museum Education Officer to your school to celebrate students’ creative achievements
  • Official validated Trinity Arts Award certificates incur an additional cost (£2.50 per child, at time of printing, but please confirm when booking).

    Planning a visit:

    Workshop lengths vary, with price varying accordingly.

    Teachers can book up to three sessions to create a whole day at the Museum, or combine led sessions with independent exploration of the exhibitions.

    A room for lunch is provided when booking sessions led by the museum staff.
