Sensory Friendly: Design and Draw with Light @ the V&A


Add to shortlist

Come along to our Sensory Friendly: Design and Draw with light, a new monthly workshop for neurodiverse visitors of all ages and their families. Join this session to explore drawing and designing with light!

As a family you’ll get to design, make and draw using lightboxes and overhead projectors. Play with light and dark, reflections, shadows, and colours. Create and experiment using a mixture of different art materials to make colourful projections in the space.

If you need a break, there will be a breakout space available through the day, with one within the event space and the other nearby. This space will have: a blackout tent, cushions, sensory toys, and ear defenders.

  • All activities are optional, and you can visit at any point during the event timings, between 11am - 4pm. However, please book your tickets to give us an idea if you’re likely to visit us earlier 11am-1:30pm, or later in the day 1:30-4pm.
  • This is an activity for families where either a child or the parent/ carer/ guardian has a neurodiversity or sensory processing disorder. This is a free, drop-in event for families to enjoy all together; no child can be left unattended. Suitable for ages 5+.
