Children’s Workshops

Exploring the secrets of Swedenborg House

As part of our Community Programme, we run regular drawing workshops at Swedenborg House with the artist Sally Kindberg. Sally leads these workshops for adults and children (aged 6 years +) on the many fascinating items on display at Swedenborg House, and on Swedenborg himself. Visitors are led through a unique exploration of our rare collection of artefacts and treasures, including strange mechanical inventions, powdered wigs, duck feather pens and angels.


During the workshops, Sally leads participants in learning the skills of comic book art and the use of duck quill pens, which always results in a range of intriguing artworks. Parents are welcome to join in and refreshments are provided.
