The sessions are designed with early years development in mind. Artists draw upon their expertise as early years facilitators and use the Kettle’s Yard ethos and collection to create sessions where babies, toddlers and their carers can experience and learn together.

The activities help children explore the world around them, discover processes and play with new materials through creating new worlds, stories and adventures. Creation and communication are encouraged through making and there is a rich environment for play and enjoyment.

Join us in our Clore Learning Studio for free, practical art making workshops. Respond to the displays and exhibitions to make your own artworks. Get creative with artists and our learning volunteers, no previous art experience needed!

Activities are for all but most suitable for children between 3 and 11 years. We like to encourage parents/carers to create alongside their child.

If Studio Sunday is busy, you can still get creative by picking up some of our free art activities from the desk.

Our autumn animal cards are back again! Pick up a free card on your way into the Garden to learn about different garden wildlife and what they get up to at this time of year and decorate it with fallen leaves, seeds and petals as you make your way around the beautiful Botanic Garden.  

Several different animal cards are available to collect. Cards will change approximately every 2 weeks. 

This autumn, grab your pencils and head to the Botanic Garden to have a go at our new Autumn Art Adventure.  We’ve produced a little booklet which is free to pick up from the ticket offices and is full of prompts and ideas to help you observe, imagine, scribble and draw as you make your way around the beautiful Garden at autumn time.
