Portraits on Plates – inspired by the work of Arts Council Collection artist, Lisa Cheung, our Arts Council Collection exhibition Walls Have Ears and all the beautiful ceramics we have at the Hall, this is your chance to decorate your own plates and mugs! We will provide some real ceramic for you to draw on. You’ll think of cool pictures and drawings you’d like to decorate your pieces with, practice first on paper, and then decorate your very own special plate and mug to take home. Suitable for children aged 5 and over. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
This activity is free and pre-booking is essential as spaces are limited. Sessions run from 11.30am till 1pm and 2pm till 3.30pm. Please state your preferred time when booking.

If you are a Birmingham Museums Trust member entrance to the Hall will be free, but you will need to pre-book for this family activity if you wish to take part.
