It's a packed roster of fun events this Easter at the National Waterfront Museum Swansea
Activities at the Museum promise "egg-citing" Easter fun with plenty for families to enjoy
Kicking things off is a themed book weekend on Sat 31 March and Sun 1 April. Activities include a Book Swap (11am-4pm) where visitors can offload their unwanted novels to find a different collection in exchange, as well as a Storytelling and Book Crafts (1pm-3pm) event for families in celebration of International Children's Book Day.
From Mon 2 to Thurs 5 April and again from Mon 9 to Sun 15 April (11.30am-1pm & 2pm-3.30pm), visitors can explore cool green screen technology to transport their faces into an old photograph before turning it into a postcard ready to send. Following this will be an Easter Fun Day on Good Friday (6 April) from 12pm featuring eccentric activities and a golden ticket-inspired egg trail.
Other events include Make & Mend (Sat 7 April, 1.30pm), a crafty workshop for adults taking inspiration from the pre-digital world of photography using vintage photos and old postcards to make gift tags or decoupage pieces. Keeping to the photography theme, Richard Morris, a leading expert on photographer John Dillwyn Llewellyn will discuss Llewellyn's pioneering work and bring his techniques alive in a practical demonstration on Sat 7 April at 2.30pm.
But, if visitors prefer breaking things and fixing them back together again, then come along to Break & Bend (Sat 7 April, 1.30pm) to join in the latest trend in circuit bending and garden shed tinkering.
The Museum will also be launching a brand new addition to the events calendar entitled Street Science. The first installment - on Sat 14 April at 12.30pm & 2.30pm - will give visitors the chance to explore whether or not an egg can survive a 20-foot drop.
And that's not all, visitors are urged to just pop in, relax and enjoy a coffee or try out a delicious savory or sweet crepe at the Waterfront Creperie.
"We're delighted with our events package this Easter," said Steph Mastoris, Head of Museum. "There's something for everyone - from taking part in creative workshops to hunting around the galleries for eggs. It really is an excellent place to explore Wales' story of industry and innovation as well as some Easter-inspired activities."
