Drop in to our free kids' collage workshop celebrating the launch of illustrator Charlotte Trounce's children's book, My Modern House.

Pop into the Barbican Shop between 1–2.30pm and design your own 'Face House' inspired by Kazumasa Yamashita's Japanese landmark. Using a selection of pre-cut paper houses, colourful shapes and stickers you can craft your own dream home.

We're also launching Trounce's My Modern House, an activity book for budding designers bursting with drawing, colouring and sticker activities, alongside illuminating profiles of famous architects and the homes they created. We'll be offering 10% off to celebrate.
