Family Art Workshops are creative activity sessions led by artists. Inspired by our programme and our building, activities have included everything from making simple prints, to designing robots, book-making and creating recycled crafts.

These drop-in activities are open to all but are especially suitable for families with children aged 5 – 11. Visitors can stay for as long or as little as they like. Activities are free and no booking is required. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
