Families come celebrate the festive season with a variety of Moomin-themed activities across the Gallery:
Meet a Moomin
11am — 12pm, 2 — 3pm & 4 — 5pm
Have you ever met a Moomin? Now’s your chance! Polka Theatre’s Moomin puppets have come out of hibernation especially to say hello! Enjoy a one-on-one experience meeting these beloved creatures and of course Polka Theatre’s skilful puppeteers!
Store Places for Love
10am — 5pm
Writing about her Christmas traditions as a child, Jansson described her family’s glass bauble as “store places for love”. Now it’s your turn to fill a bauble with trinkets and messages of love for friends and family.
Dear Santa Claus
10am — 5pm
Have you written your letter to Santa Claus yet? Help yourself to some materials, and write and decorate your letter to him – maybe you’ll even get a reply…
10am — 5pm
Style yourself like Snorkmaiden and make a flower crown to wear proudly. The Sackler Centre is our designated quiet space, where you can make a crown and take a break from the busyness of the gallery.
10.20am, 11.30am, 1.30pm & 3.30pm (Workshop length: 40 mins)
Get lost in the Scandinavian folk tales that Tove would have grown up with as a child. Maybe you’ll even hear about the creatures that could have been the inspiration for the Moomins…
