Get ready to indulge your child’s creativity with our deliciously fun workshop.

We will set up our own mini still life’s out of cakes and biscuits – yum! With guidance from our artist educator you will take home a lovely drawing of your scrumptious Still Life artwork.

There will be time for the children to visit the current exhibition The Shape of Things: Still Life in Britain. And they will receive a sketchbook and pencil to take home.

Designed for ages 7-10, this session promises a feast for the imagination.

Parental supervision is optional but welcomed!

Things to note and what to bring

All materials will be provided and we advise that children wear comfortable clothing that they can get messy. Please provide lunch and a snack for your child.

We may wish to use photographs you share of you, your child, or their artwork on our website or social media for marketing purposes. Please let us know, when sharing children’s work via email, if you do not consent to this usage.

We believe art is for everyone, and endeavour to make any reasonable adjustment for participants. If your child has a specific access requirement and you would like to discuss the workshop with a member of the Public Programme team, please tick the box in the booking form for a confidential phone call.

Helen is an inspirational and accomplished artist and teacher who is passionate about the arts. She has always immersed herself fully in the creative world, working in both galleries and schools, as well as creating her own work.

Helen has taught art in a range of secondary schools to all levels and abilities. She has recently left a full-time teaching position as Head of Art to focus on her own art practice of ceramics.

The biggest influence on Helen’s own work has been nature and landscape. She uses the process of Raku, where the clay comes together with fire and water to produce dramatic and unexpected results.
