YOUNGSTERS got the opportunity to create some fancy headwear at a fun workshop.

H2oh! Education ran the free session at the City Museum in Portsmouth, and plenty of families dropped by to try their hand at making themselves a hat.

The session was inspired by the Make! Believe! Make! exhibition which was on display in the museum’s groundfloor exhibition space and was created in partnership with the Aspex Gallery.

The exhibition let several modern crafts artists explore the museum’s stores to find their inspiration.

Some artists have made new work in response to the museum objects, others made intriguing links between their existing work and the museum’s collections, including between major maritime disasters and delicate porcelain, or natural science and ceramics.
