Bunnies will be bouncing all over the Rugby Art Gallery and Museum this spring, as Peter Rabbit hops, skips and jumps right off the page in this interactive exhibition about Beatrix Potter’s most famous creation.

Generations of children have grown up with Peter Rabbit, from reading the original tales to watching the current TV animation. This exhibition looks at Peter across the ages, and includes original artworks, first editions and early Peter Rabbit merchandise.

To accompany the show, we will be offering workshops for Early Years and the Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

Our learning links will focus on Literacy, Art and History.

Our 2-hour workshops cost between £95- £130 per class. All workshops include a tour of the exhibition space exploring the interactive displays with a facilitator asking the groups to discuss the work and take part in fun activities as they explore the show. Children can have fun helping Mrs, Tiggy-Winkle hang up the laundry or visit Mrs. Rabbit in her burrow. They can dress up as Peter, help plant carrots in Mr, McGregor’s garden or curl up with one of the books in our story corner. You can then take part in a story writing workshop developing your own characters, illustrations and storyboard (KS1&2 only).  For a more art-based workshop, have a go at vegetable printing and producing group artwork of Mr, McGregor’s Garden using a variety of materials and techniques. Each child can then produce a wooden spoon puppet to take home.
