Summer Art Clubs 2018

This Summer we’re running art club sessions every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and then a special Big Project session every Friday, from the 31st July – 24th August, 10am – 12.30pm.

There’s a mixture of individual activity sessions with different crafts, and some days with linked double clay make and paint sessions. (where you ‘make’ in the first hour session and then ‘paint’ in the second hour session) And of course our Big Project Fridays!

Every session will be led by our helpful and friendly staff members. Drop your kids off to whichever sessions they like.

Big Project sessions are our fantastic double session where everyone will work together to create a fabulous giant group project. At the end of the summer this will be displayed for everyone to see in the studio. Big Project sessions will also include a similar smaller individual craft activity so each child has something to take home as well on the day. There will be hints as to what the big project will be, coming soon on our Facebook page!

£11 per child for 1 session, or £20 for 2 sessions on 1 day, Clay Make and Paint days and Big Project Fridays. For ages 6 years to 12 years. Drinks and snacks (crisps, fruit and biscuits etc.) will be provided.
