Grow your own food

Decorated cress head
Sow some cress and watch your seedlings grow at home. Suitable for ages 5 and over.

During the Second World War, Abram Games designed posters for the 'Dig for Victory' campaign. This encouraged people to grow their own food rather than relying on imports that took up vital shipping space.

In this workshop, you will make your own cress head to take home. How will you decorate the face?

Drop-in sessions:

  • 11am to 1pm
  • 2pm to 4pm

Family activities are limited and available on a first come, first served basis. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

The mission continues...

Don't forget to pick up a free mission handbook at the Museum and collect your sticker for 'Week 6: Grow your own food'.

'Summer mission: Fun and Games' continues until 31 August with different activities each week. Can you collect a sticker for all six weeks? Win a special prize for collecting three or more (available while stocks last).
