Arts activities for young people and families are often, because of cost, out of reach to many. The arts is squeezed in the national curriculum because of pressure to study main stream academic subjects. Families under financial pressure do not do activities together which help to build family cohesion.


By providing free drop in workshops the opportunity to engage with creativity is open to the widest possible audience. Families can engage in activity together and many people coming to our workshops are first time gallery and museum visitors. the joy of producing things together is revealed to many of them for the first time.
