Be inspired by our off-road vehicles, and variety of painting methods, to decorate your car. Using paint to create a colourful design: spin, splat, and spray paint to make your car stand out from the crowd. And, build your own fidget spinner to help with the decorating! 

Careful - it can get messy! We recommend that you bring spare clothes.

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
