Design River Relay

One bottle. 200 miles. Coinciding with the Totally Thames Festival the Design Museum hosts the Thames relay bottle for a day of drawing and modelling workshops.

As part of the Totally Thames Source to Sea River Relay, a day of family friendly fun with modelling, sketching and making for all.

The sessions are inspired by the journey of the Thames relay bottle which has been filled with water at the Thames’s source and passed downstream by walkers, swimmers, rowers, sailors and many others, now arriving at the Design Museum before continuing on its journey to the sea.

Workshops throughout the day explore the design of bottles and the life of the river through different techniques of making, crafting and drawing – all suitable for families and adult visitors.
