Our Workshops

We offer a variety of curriculum linked workshops from Early Years to Key Stage 4. We can adapt these workshops to suit different learning requirements and time constraints, so please feel free to get in touch with us and we can discuss these further.

We have a dedicated workshop space in the Centre for pupils to do hands on learning, bridge building and explore STEAM subjects (science, technology, engineering, art, and maths).

Contact us to discuss a schools workshop. To find out more or to make a booking, contact Mark Tebbs on 07508 957876 or

Please note that from 5th September 2022 we will be charging £3.50 per pupil for school workshops (and £4.50 for the Meeting Brunel workshop). This is due to our project funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund ending. Please download our price list for more details or contact Mark Tebbs our Heritage Officer at
