Gallery Workshops and Outreach

Orleans House Gallery is currently reviewing its school offer and taking a pause over the spring term.  We are working on exciting plans going forward and will be updating our website in due course.  We are still running the Turner’s House sessions and our exciting new collaboration with Marble Hill House.

Turner's House workshops

Students meet at Turner’s House in St Margaret’s and embark on an interactive tour of the site before walking down to Orleans House Gallery to create their own artwork inspired by Turner.  These sessions are run in partnership with Turner’s House Trust and must be on a Tuesday morning.  Sessions cost £100.

A Very Georgian Garden: History and Landscape at Marble Hill

KS1, KS2.  Can be adapted for KS3 and SEN groups.

Book this hands-on expert led workshop at Marble Hill Gardens and Orleans House Gallery made possible thanks to funding from the National Lottery and the support of lottery players.

Take your class back  in time to examine Georgian life through the story of Henrietta Howard, a courageous character who made a home and country retreat in this spectacular location set on the Thames.  Your pupils will learn about the remarkable Henrietta, through art, language and role-play to develop an understanding of how the landscape changed over time.

This workshop uses interactive and sensory activities to explore the landscape of Marble Hill House and its rich history.  At Orleans House students will take part in an expert-led clay workshop using the landscape as inspiration.  Please note that this is an outdoor workshop and that pupils will not visit the house itself.

Great value at £100 per session per class.
