Our range of new workshops aim to make our world renowned library and archive collections accessible, interesting and relevant to everyone.
About Our Workshops
All workshops are currently free of charge. A session typically lasts for 90 minutes and is facilitated by experienced Institute staff in our new state-of-the-art learning space.
Participants have the opportunity to handle and work with a range of sources, including photographs, pamphlets, press cuttings, maps and sound recordings.
Workshops are informal with opportunities for participants to share knowledge, experiences and views in a friendly and supportive environment. Guided tasks encourage participants to respond creatively and imaginatively to the workshop theme.
- East End: Myths and Reality
- Spitalfields: Movement, Migration and Immigration
- London in Peril: War and Peace
- Changing Lives in Victorian London
- London Tourists
Groups who attend three or more of our sessions are invited to take part in an in-depth workshop, exploring a theme of their choice inspired by their previous workshop learning.
