Tours, Workshops and Events.

I spent a delightful day at Roche Court- the setting and the sculpture are stunning and it was no surprise that the children loved being there. The staff were all friendly and well informed and made the day a pleasure for the children.  The children were encouraged to think about materials, subject matter and they really enjoyed discussing their responses to the sculptures in front of them. By the end of the day they were happily discussing materials, subject matter and their own thoughts.”  School Visitor 2013
