Fully booked

Our space becomes a palette of images, colours, and materials for you to explore, make and play.

Using our new exhibitions Charlotte Johannesson, Carolyn Lazard: Long Take and Rosalind Nashashibi: Hooks for inspiration, find connections to generate your artwork. We encourage you to make one, leave one, for others to rework and continue.

Our workshops are drop-in; we invite you to book as spaces are limited.

Our sessions take place on Tue, Wed & Thu, 4 – 13 April, at the following times:

10:00 – 12:00 noon

13:00 – 15:00

Book a ticket per person, including adults and children. Online bookings end at the start of each session.

If you are having difficulty or would like support in completing your booking, please call us on (0115 948 9750).

Free. Limited Capacity. Booking is required.
