Celebrate the opening of Small Stories: At Home in a Dollhouse with a book and story-making workshop. What would you write if your storybook looked like a house? Would it be a true story or fiction? Would it be 2D or 3D? Meet Sushmita Mazumdar, a local contemporary artist featured in the exhibition, and see how she created a storybook that looks like a home from her family's history. Explore the stories and houses in Small Stories then write your own story about a place important to you. Finally, learn to make a unique house-shaped book where your story can live.

Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferrable. Online registration for Musem programs closes at midnight the day before the scheduled program. Walk-in registration based on availability.
