• Chinese coins at the Williamson

About the Artist/Exhibition

Come to the Williamson to celebrate Chinese New Year with our new learning offer for schools.

Williamson Art Gallery & Museum invite schools in Wirral to learn about Chinese New Year with us by taking part in our fun creative learning workshop at the gallery.

Try on our authentic lion head costume and take part in a lion dance through the gallery. This year’s artist led arts and crafts activities on offer will be celebrating the year of the dog. We also have a social documentary exhibiton called Dragons in the Pool, exploring the sad true story of Chinese seamen who were secretly deported from the UK after the second world war, leaving behind their families.

To book a half day workshop at a cost of £100 per school group, please contact Kathy Heywood who is our  learning officer at Williamson Art Gallery and Museum. She can be reached on 0151 666 3537 or by emailing kathyheywood@wirral.gov.uk
