This event has passed.

Have a go at screen printing and transform an old t-shirt with a bold new design.

We will start the day exploring the exhibitions in the Gallery and taking sketches, documenting patterns and text to incorporate into our prints. Back in the Studio, we will learn how to create stencils, using mesh screens to print on paper, and then onto a t-shirt with our final design.

10.30am – 3.30pm

All workshops take place in the Gallery and are led by professional artist educators. Please drop your children off in time to start at 10.30am and pick up at 3.30pm. In some cases, the workshop leader may invite you to return slightly earlier to see a presentation by the workshop participants. Children will stay in the Gallery all day.

All equipment will be provided and materials are included in the ticket price but please provide a packed lunch for your child*. Lunchbreaks will be supervised by Gallery staff.

Advance booking is essential. If you’re under 18, tickets must be booked in advance by a parent or guardian.

*The Gallery café offers a lunch option for your children. Our chefs will prepare your child’s lunchbox during the morning activities and have it ready for their lunch break.  All packed lunches will include a cheese or ham roll, piece of fruit, yoghurt, Babybel and your choice of either a Fruit Shoot or bottle of water.  All packed lunches are £5 each and must be pre-ordered on the morning of the workshop from the café counter on the ground floor.
