Messy Play for 0-3s

Duration: 1h
Dates: Fri 23 - Tue 27 Aug 2024
Location: Create Space

Join us for messy, sensory and creative sessions for little ones. 

Sessions respond to our exhibitions, with activities designed to give little ones a chance to explore art materials and make their mark. You can expect an art activity, a sensory play activity and lots of ideas for things to do at home or out and about. 

There are a variety of days and times available each month to give as many people as possible the chance to try the activities. Each session will be led by an art therapist and an artist tutor, with activities changing each month. As the name suggests, these sessions can get messy and we recommend dressing with this in mind. At the end of each session we provide a warm water bath and towels for clean up. 

These sessions are very popular - if for any reason you are unable to make it along please let us know by calling Box Office on 01382 432444 or emailing [javascript protected email address] so we can make the spaces available for others. Occasionally these sessions are observed by university students for research purposes.
