Half Term Activities

Invent, Create, Destroy, Rebuild
Tue 29 Oct – Sun 3 Nov, 11am – 4pm

Ariel Schlesinger, the artist who created Ways to Say Goodbye, has set you a challenge; to see the familiar in a new, extraordinary light.

Our world is full of objects. As kids we learn to make sense of what they are and what they do. Some are funny like hats and socks; some are dangerous like kettles and cars. Adults teach us how to use the things properly, but following the rules can be quite boring. Try to forget how you’re supposed to use things, and instead find new and exciting uses for them.

Join in with games and activities designed to challenge your creativity and what it means to be an artist. The only limit is your imagination.

Half Term Forest School
Thu 31 Oct, 11am – 3pm

As the light fades and the shadows grow long we invite children of all ages to join us in the Forest School. Mix up magic potions in the mud kitchen; spot the pine cone bats flying through the trees; and design lanterns to brighten the evening.
