Can you build the highest tower, design a fantastical hat or make a working crane?

Be inspired by our historic exhibits and iconic cranes, let your imagination run riot and discover the designer hiding inside you.

Make sure you have time to explore M Shed with our brand new ABC of M Shed trail and, if that's not enough, design your own M Shed inspired letter board to take home.

This is a Big Draw event. The theme this year is The Steam Powered Big Draw Festival which brings together Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths (STEAM).

We will be celebrating the fact that every piece of engineering and manufacturing began with someone drawing an idea. You will be encouraged to draw and explore ideas before you construct your own fantastical creations using a wide range of sometimes unexpected materials.

Part of Bristol Family Arts Festival.
