Family fun: Adding colour to Mars

Enjoy a free drop-in workshop at the Martian House this summer with Spacewear Fashion and textiles artist, Anurita Chandola.

Building a Martian House is a public art project on M Shed Square that has made a prototype of a real Martian house.

At these workshops you will learn to create textiles and clothing using minimal, simple resources that might be available in an off-world settlement such as Mars.

Explore patterns, colours and natural dyeing techniques to create sustainable textiles to be displayed in the Martian House. Please wear clothes you do not mind getting dirty!

Pre-booking isn’t required, drop in on the day and stay as long as you like. The workshops are suitable for children aged 4+. Children must be accompanied by parents or guardians at all times.
