Celebrate our 3rd Birthday in style with musical jelly, microwave rainbow cake made by pastry chef Terri of Fraise Sauvage. Every birthday party needs candles, and we have the most spectacular candle ever! Chemistry student Anna Ploszajski will be demonstrating the Rubens' Tube she made: read more about her project on our blog. In our Materials Library learn about the science of chocolate and find out if you are a super-taster!
Inspired by London Underground signs, artist Helen Carnac will introduce you to the process of enamelling, with a chance to make your own enamelled piece of copper to take away.
This station is sponsored by and in collaboration with Art on the Underground’s, Underline programme which is a series of art and music commissions to celebrate the Victoria line.
We will be launching a very exciting Cutlery Competition in collaboration with The Worshipful Guild of Cutlers to design and make a new eating tool/utensil. To celebrate its launch we are taking over a section of the Materials Library and filling it with the most diverse range of cutlery we can find.
Have you got an unusual eating tool you would like to donate, bring it along on the day.
No need to book, just drop in from 1pm.
Doors close at 5pm and space is limited.
