Alongside our permanent galleries we have a programme of changing temporary exhibitions.
Whenever we can, we will create a unique workshop linked directly to the exhibition, giving us the opportunity to explore different themes and often work with the exhibitors themselves. Keep checking this page to find out what we have to offer!
