Start the Art

Tuesday 2 June / 11am - 12 noon / Free*

For accompanied children aged under 5


Book tickets


In honour of Children’s Art Week (13 - 21 June) this month’s Start the Art is going back to basics with a series of workshops focusing on key elements of child creativity. From colour-filled collages to artful architecture, June promises to be packed full of fun!


We kick off the month with a workshop dedicated to the humble line. Straight lines, wiggly lines, zigzagged lines - how can we combine these to make exciting patterns and shapes? Join us as we explore this in today’s fun-filled session.



Places are limited, and booking essential. Ensure you book the correct number of child tickets for children that you need and adult tickets for adults. Thank you.
