We were able to connect with nearly 700 participants, taking part in activities from printmaking and drama, to dance and sensory play.
Look out for the Easter programme coming in April 2023 and in the meantime we have a number of children classes running in the Autumn/Winter term.

Meet our Tactile Paper Collage tutor
We’re excited to introduce new tutor Sinead Merry to our workshops programme. Some of you may have met Sinead at our jubilee celebrations where she created a giant crown sculpture out of willow. Her work explores surface and structure through the manipulation of traditional techniques to create layered mixed media forms that play with the idea of revealing and concealing.
Sinead’s seasonal weaving workshop is now fully booked but there is still space to join her Tactile Paper Collage workshop on Sat 22 Oct. Book here.
