11am - 2pm
[ Children )Buy Tickets >
Capture your memories in your own holiday collage masterpiece!
Join us for an immersive workshop where your cherished holiday photographs will take centre stage as a Christmas gift.
Children will begin the workshop with a journey up to the John Craxton: A Modern Odyssey exhibition armed with a sketchbook. Here, they will get to explore the intricate dance of light and shadow that Craxton used in his works.
Back in the Studio, your kids will create collage pieces using images from old holiday photographs. We’ll transform your holiday snapshots into captivating pieces that radiate colour, texture, and tone. Just as Craxton’s masterpieces evoke emotion through contrasting tones, we will show children how to weave memories into unique works of art.
At the end of the workshop, every artwork will be lovingly wrapped, ready to be shared as a thoughtful gift for your loved ones. What better way to celebrate the festive period than through an artwork that captures your precious memories?
Things to note

Please provide a packed lunch and drink for your child. There will be a lunch break during the workshop.
We will be taking photographs during the workshop, if you would prefer your child not to be photographed, just let us know.
