Take inspiration from nature and from Kurt Jackson's beautiful exhibition: Biodiversity at this creative and exploratory family workshop, designed for adults and children to enjoy together. We will work with mixed media and natural materials such as pressed leaves and flowers to begin small summer sketchbooks using a range of techniques and materials to unlock creativity and consider the natural world on our doorstep.

Well be sure to leave some pages blank for you to explore and record the biodiversity of any habitats you explore this summer!

The exploratory nature of this workshop means it can be enjoyed by children as young as five or six but will also suit older children and teens.

This workshop will last an hour and a half and is being run three times during the day, the session start times are: 10am, 12:30pm and 2.30pm.

We recommend making time (before or after the workshop) to explore the gallery while you are here, particularly Kurt Jackson's exhibition Biodiversity on which the workshop is based. The Art Gallery's opening hours are 10am - 3pm Monday to Friday and 10am - 5pm on Saturdays.

In the unlikely event of our having to cancel a session, we will offer a full refund. Unfortunately tickets are otherwise non-refundable. Please contact us if you wish to transfer your ticket to a friend if you cannot attend for any reason.
