LEARNING RESOURCES

The Gordon Russell Design Museum offers a range of rich and varied resources, workshops and outreach to support teaching and learning for Primary, Secondary, Further and Higher Education students, teachers and lecturers.

We have created a series of teachers’ resource packs to download for use with students studying product design, resistant materials, design and technology as well as art and design. Additional study units are available for Key Stages 1 – 3, GCSE and A level.

There are also fun activities for all the family located in the ground floor galleries.
