Have fun exploring natural environments with artist Abigail Hunt. Play:Make:Art is our Friday morning (fortnightly) creative drop-in session for 2-5-year-olds. This year, we are asking the question – how can we renew our relationship with nature? 

Each workshop is an opportunity to engage with the natural world and learn how it is also a participant. Some sessions take children and their accompanying adults on  an exploratory artistic walk in the woods. Others transform our workshop space into an installation that communicates with nature.  

In this artistic and exploratory environment, families can play without a prescribed expectation. Abigail carefully curates materials that enable children to respond in their own way. The result is an open-ended shared creative experience.  

The workshops support communication between adults and children, helping with early skills development, co-ordination and social interaction. They are also a learning tool to help us understand how to love and respect nature. 

Sessions are fortnightly on Fridays and run from 10.30am-1pm with last admission at 12.30pm. This flexible drop-in session is designed to fit around your routine. Our autumn dates for 2022 are as follows:
