Saturday Art Club has been inspiring families for 14 years. Come along to these fun and creative workshops up in our roof top studio. Take inspiration from the artworks on display while trying out different materials and techniques. Drawing, painting, sculptures, printing, collage, what will you be making this week?
Recommended for children 5 - 12 years.

What do art and science have in common? Inspired by the film by Fischli+Weiss in Gallery 2, you will make our own crazy science experiments while at the same time creating your artistic masterpiece!
