This Girl Codes Heritage Hack Lab

Junction Arts invites you to take part in our This Girl Codes day-long heritage hack lab at Creswell Crags, with artist Cora Glasser.

Get exclusive access to the Robin Hood’s Cave to see the Witch Marks and then create your own works of art in light. Cora will guide you through the process to create your own ‘marks’ inspired by your visit which we will then use to paint with light in the wonderful Pin Hole Cave. No previous experience required, but booking is essential as spaces are limited. All materials and kit provided, but if you have access to a tripod and camera then do bring it along.


Booking charges and info:

We are requesting a small booking fee of £3 per person (adults and children 7 or older) to guarantee your space on the day. Please note that Creswell Crags do administer car parking fees of £6 for the day. Please contact Junction Arts on info@junctionarts.org if fees are an issue, we will be discreet and can offer subsidised charges.



Due to the nature of the content, we recommend This Girl Codes for children aged 7 or older. Children must be 5 years or older to go in the caves, and children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. All visitors must wear a helmet (which will be provided) when in the caves, and consent to the caves being secured from the inside while the tour is in progress. Eating, drinking and smoking is NOT permitted inside the caves or main exhibition. Dogs are not permitted in the museum unless they are support dogs. In this instance we ask that you let us know in advance so that we can make appropriate arrangements. Dogs are not permitted in the caves. Please contact us in advance of booking a tour if you would like to visit with a support dog.


Accessibility Information:

The Caves are situated within a natural landscape. Unfortunately, the caves are not accessible for wheelchair users/those with some mobility issues. You will need to walk 10 minutes to reach the caves and remain standing throughout the tour/activity. The caves are accessed from the footpath via wooden stairs, with further stairs inside each cave. Pin Hole cave is small inside so light painting activities will be restricted to groups of 4/5 throughout the day. In Robin Hood Cave, there is a section of low ceiling which makes it necessary to crouch down in order to walk under, and also uneven floors to navigate. Although the helmets are equipped with a headlamp, light levels may not be sufficient for those with visual perception difficulties, or people who are blind or partially sighted. Light levels may also be insufficient for those who lipread. There are cave spiders at Creswell Crags. Whilst they can be large, they are harmless and protected. Please contact us if you have any queries or concerns about accessing the caves.
