Family Workshops

We provide workshops for families during school holidays to encourage the enjoyment of looking and talking about art together. The sessions promote a supported environment to explore the exhibitions at the New Art Centre and to develop an ownership from the community in our cultural heritage.

Our Family Workshops are most suitable for children aged 5-12. Places are limited, booking essential. Children: £5 / Adults: Free.

Please note all children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Although there is no cost for the accompanying adult(s) we are very grateful for donations to the Roche Court Educational Trust.

To book a place, email or call the Education Team on 01980 862 802.
