Mosaic Tile Workshop with Susan Day
Make Your Mark on the New Children’s Museum! Join us for a tile-making workshop with local artist Susan Day. Use raw clay, tools, and templates to create your own tiles. Touch and explore glazed tile samples and examine life-sized panels of artwork by Susan Day.
Tiles created during these workshops will be used in a Susan Day mosaic to be installed in the New Children’s Museum at 100 Kellogg Lane.
Information, photographs, and artwork collected from these workshops will inform the content of the new mosaic.
This collaborative community project will create a physical link between the current London Children’s Museum and our future site.
Help shape our new home and join us for the following workshops:
- Thursday, November 14, 5 pm - 8 pm (during TD Free Family Fun Night)
- Friday, November 15, 1 pm - 4 pm
- Saturday, November 16, 10 am - 5 pm

About the New Children’s Museum
The Children’s Museum has found new home at 100 Kellogg Lane! After 36 years on Wharncliffe Rd S, this beloved building has seen a lot of play. While the spirit of the London Children’s Museum will remain the same, it’s time to create a new space for the community.
Over the next few years, the London Children’s Museum will renovate over 35,000 square feet in the former historic Kellogg building, creating innovative exhibits designed for today’s children and families.
