Join us for an interactive, tailor-made tour of the sculptures at Roche Court! Our cross-curricula workshops are designed for children aged 3- 4 years old to experience sculpture first- hand through practical activities on route around our outdoor and indoor exhibition spaces. Play and exploration are key to the workshops, as we learn more about the artworks and talk about our ideas.

‘I think it was one of the best trips we have ever had and considering it was your first time hosting an education visit for an Early Years group, it was exceptional. Thank you.’

Workshops can include:

  • Making our own sculptures
  • Drawing
  • Movement and drama
  • Storytelling
  • Sensory tour
  • Music

Nurseries have assessed that our workshops support the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.
