Holiday Workshops for Children and Young People at The Art Room

Creative comes naturally to the young; they have wonderful imaginations, producing work full of vitality, individualistic appeal and simple authenticity.

The school holidays are a great opportunity for children to make time for art and craft. Through a range of fun, engaging activities, holiday workshops at The Art Room offer boys and girls an intense creative boost as part of their holiday.


Using a wide range of materials - including clay, wool, willow, yarn, natural materials, card, paper, paint, pencils and pens - children are guided through hands-on creative processes to make pictures, models and craft objects.


Workshops at The Art Room offer total creative immersion: children emerge having been fully absorbed and busy throughout, with pleasing and satisfying results.


All activities aim to be equally appealing to both boys and girls!


Children are made aware of health and safety at the start of every class, asked to wash their hands, and are given instruction on how to use equipment and materials.


Holiday workshops for children and young people throughout the rest of this year are listed below. Information on how to book places can be found on the 'Bookings/Contact/Info' page. Places are limited so advance booking is recommended.
