Free Family Workshops (online):

Join us from your home every Saturday 1pm – 3pm for our Free Family Workshop with Morgan and Tia. We have picked some of our favourite moments out of our wonderful family workshop photography archive and used these images as a starting point to create a series of activity sheets inspired by your creations and participation at our workshops.

Full of creativity and play based activities aimed at ages 5-10 years but essentially fun for everyone! Our free family activity sheets are designed to inspire imaginations, engage, challenge and spend some creative time making and playing as a family. We will post the activity sheet into the Free Family Workshop facebook event at 1pm every Saturday or get in touch if you would prefer it by email.

 

Open Play Workshops (online):

Our Open Play sessions are for babies and toddlers aged 0-4 years old, every Sunday 11am-1pm from the comfort of your own home. Based on some of our favourite moments and beautiful photographs from our Open Play sessions we have created a series of activity sheets for grownups with little ones that will explore sensory and play led activities. We will post the activity sheets into the Open Play facebook event at 11am every Sunday or get in touch with Morgan if you would prefer it by email.

If you have been to our workshops, chances are we’ve taken some great photographs of you getting creative. The plan is that when we are allowed back into the gallery, we will put the activity sheets together and turn it into an amazing colouring book that celebrates our family community and their creativity. We would love it if you could send us your completed activity sheets and photos of your family taking part in the activities at home for the publication.
