Experience the extraordinary at The Edge this summer as Bath’s largest contemporary art centre presents children’s puppet making and storytelling workshops, inspired by the work of someone quite extraordinary. Here is an artist who transformed everyday items into an alternative world, and was described as an alchemist of the mundane. Step into the world of Robert Anton with an exhibition of miniature mannequins, props and drawings, in the gallery until 14 September. On display in England for the first time, this incredible collection will provide a fascinating experience for all the family.

Get creative with workshops on Thursdays throughout August. Make puppets of your own with Edwina Bridgeman on 1, 8 and 29 August, or have fun with interactive storytelling with Lizzie Cummins on 15 and 22 August.

The Theatre of Robert Anton exhibition is free. Tel: 01225 386777; edgearts.org
