Join us for our FREE family craft day, children and adults can have a go at lots of different techniques from clay to print to jewellery.

No need to book, just turn up. 10am – 3pm.


Have a go at:

Come along and print your very own lino print; Nathalie Pymm has created a few little lino cuts for you to choose from. Roll out some colour and print it out for you to take home.

Turn found objects and everyday disposable items into up-cycled funky jewellery with designer maker Kate Wilkinson.

Make a relief tile with Sophie Court, using cutters, stamps and textured mats then decorate using slips. The tile will be fired and glazed. To be collected at a later date.

Have fun learning how to draw both The Snowman, and The Snowdog with Hilary Audus, who Animated and Directed on the Classic Christmas Films.
