Design Your Own Time Capsule with V&A Dundee

Visit us at our pop-up shop on level 2 next to Home Bargains in Dundee's Wellgate Shopping Centre from 15th-23rd October to take part in our free Time Capsule workshops. 

You will have the opportunity to work together as a family with a designer and create your own time capsule with the free kit provided. The idea is that you can then take your time capsule home and fill it with memorable things before burying or hiding it somewhere to be opened in the future.

We also have additional activities for you to take part in and become designers of the future, which includes designing a car, house or fashion items of the future. 

Joanna Mawdsley, Learning Manager for Schools, Young People and Families at V&A Dundee, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be taking over a shop within the Wellgate shopping centre during the school holidays, giving children and their families an opportunity to design and make their very own time capsule

“We think everyone is creative, and want to encourage the next generation of Scottish designers to come along and have some fun in our free workshops.

“It’s fantastic to be active in communities across Dundee and Scotland before the museum opens, giving people a chance to see how exciting it is to be a designer.”

The free workshops will run from Saturday 15 to Sunday 23 October from 11am to 4pm which are being run as part of a programme of events for V&A Dundee’s Time Capsule project.

The Time Capsule project, which will engage young people right across Scotland, has been made possible by the support of players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

We will also be on hand during the nine days to show you what the new museum will look like and offer families when we open in 2018.
