Get ready! Get set! Get incredible! Design your fantasy car inspired by our museum, and then create a model of your dream car. Take your car for a spin on a conveyor belt catwalk and finally, add your favourite features to our full size car design!

Join us in our Creative Car Factory this summer and be a real life ‘Cartist’. Create your very own model, and help us build a full size ‘car’ that is inspired by our summer exhibition. Every week, our workshop will focus on a different stage of car manufacture; from incredible ideas, all the way through to the fabulous finishes. Join us every week to explore all stages and build your very own model car or just drop by and join us for one of the workshops to make a car part to take home.

Drop in.
Suitable for ages 3+ but all ages are welcome.

Remember to share your fantastic designs over social media with #carfactoryctm
