Get inspired by Keith Haring in our hands-on family workshop

Keith Haring set up a Pop Shop in New York in 1986, where he sold t-shirts, badges and novelty items with his imagery. At our summer workshops, artist Jim Medway invites you to design and create your own badges, and printed posters. Take inspiration from our Keith Haring exhibition.
