We are running a host of exciting workshops over the summer holidays.

As well as the daily workshops, the main studio is also open every day during the school holidays from 10am to 5pm. Please do drop in to paint some pottery or design t-shirts, there's no need to book.

We suggest your child wears old clothes for all activities and the workshops are suitable for ages 7+

Please note: we cannot accommodate parents in the classroom during the workshop. Free tea and coffee is available and there is seating in the adjacent room.

Week One: Experimenting with Art

This three day week is all about pushing the boundaries of art. You'll be experimenting with different artistic mediums, creating amazing effects and even mixing art with technology and electronics. 

Week Two: Into the Tropics

Pop your sunglasses on and get ready for a scorcher. This week is all about celebrating everything hot, tropical and summery. We'll be working with clay, printing on textiles, sewing, painting ceramics, mosaic-making and much more.

Week Three: Clay Mania

This week is all about learning everything there is to know about clay and ceramics. Learn how to design and make your diverse clay sculptures, how to use glazes, how the kiln works and much more. You will also have the opportunity to throw a pot or two on the wheel every day. Please note that clay items will need to be fired. This will take two weeks, unless specified otherwise, and items can then be painted at home using acrylics if desired or painted in the studio and fired again (for an additional £5 per item).

Week Four: Where the Wild Things are

From tiny insects to roaring dragons, from the seven seas to the midnight sky - this week we'll be exploring the weird and wonderful through art.

Week Five: The Artist's Studio

Get ready to upgrade your artistic skills to another level. This week you'll be using watercolours, acrylics, pastels, chalks, inks and pencils and learning all about landscapes, animal portraits and seascapes in art.

Week Six: Art of the World

Enjoy a trip around the world, exploring different countries through art. From Peru to India, we'll be looking at what we can learn from different cultures and traditions and how to incorporate some of their artistic styles into our own work.
