Come along to the Articulture Workshop to enjoy a fun, creative morning for kids!
Art with a horticultural theme for kids. A hands on painting workshop for children from as young as 3 years old. With some simple tuition and a little help from the ‘garden gang’ (and maybe mum or dad) children can produce awesome pictures of trees and flowers to take home with them, egg box bugs and pollinators and also help to create a very hungry caterpillar.
This will be fun for all, but might get a little messy (so old clothes might be best).
Reserve your space in advance – this is likely to be very busy, and you will be able to go to the front of the queue.
All materials provided plus an artist to guide you.
This is an activity for 8 years and above, younger children may attend with a parent present. Adults also enjoy this experience and it’s not just for young people!
