Free Regular Family Art Workshops 

Family Art Workshops are creative activity sessions led by artists. Inspired by our programme and our building, activities can include anything from making monoprints, to designing robots, book-making and creating recycled crafts.

These drop-in activities are open to all, but are especially suitable for families with children aged 5–11. Visitors can stay for as long or as little as they like. Activities are free and no booking is required. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Tiny Tetley (every month)

Creative and messy play for children under 5!

Bring the little ones along to join in creative and messy play. Tiny Tetley workshops take place on the fourth Wednesday of each month and are led by artists with great skills for children aged zero to five. Inspired by The Tetley's exhibition programme and all things creative, activities include things such as sensory activities, playing with different types of bright colourful materials, to drawing on a big scale. The workshops are especially good for ages 1–4 but we supply soft mats for our youngest audience.
