Early Years Studio is a fun, creative, immersive experience for children aged 0-4. 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.

A Studio Sunday Special for families with a child about to start school. Siblings welcome!

Join us in our Clore Learning Studio for a free, practical art making workshop exploring ideas about starting school. Respond to the House and exhibitions to make your own artworks and gather new suggestions to help your family prepare together for starting school. No previous art experience needed!

This special workshop for 2-5 year olds is inspired by the wonderful book “Bumblebear” by Nadia Shireen, a story about a bear who loves honey so much he pretends to be a bee. Join us for this parent and child workshop as we dress up, dance and act out this fabulous story.

Please dress in warm and comfortable clothes (grown-ups too!) so we can move around comfortably and be prepared for all weathers.

Please book child places only.  Accompanying adults will be required to pay normal Garden admission on the day.
