Starting in September 2019 and running all the way into July 2020 Ort Gallery will be running Family Art Workshops every first and third Saturday of the month at 2pm!
The workshops take place amongst our exhibitions in the gallery and give children aged 5 to 11 and their parents a chance to explore the topics found in the artwork exhibited.
Run by professional artist Samantha who is a local ceramic artist with 20 years creative teaching experience, working with children, families and adults. Her most recent projects have been in collaboration with mental health charities, designing and delivering bespoke art projects.
In this session, participants will focus on the beautiful art of Arabic calligraphy and design and make their own unique clay tile using decorating slips and embossing.
The cost for each workshop is £4 per child, parents do not have to pay but we ask you to stay and take part with your child. We have free tickets available to low-income families, please email us for a discount code. Tickets must be booked in advance via the Ti.to link, see the left hand side menu.
The workshop series is funded by the Community Fund.
