We recognise that no two families are the same and that ‘family’ can mean different things to different people. Your family might include a friend, a neighbour, a foster parent or carer. You may be a single parent or part of a same-sex partnership; some people have a chosen family.
We are committed to shaping an inclusive gallery and cultural sector and we will prioritise 60% of workshop tickets for families who are Islington social housing tenants as part of our ongoing partnership work with Islington Council.
Our family activities are underpinned by our approach to craft education, which we call ‘Make First’. Make First is all about getting materials into the hands of children and young people and using craft to play, imagine and develop ideas. We believe children really benefit from learning through making and that this works best when activities are open-ended and leave room for trying new things, failing and trying again! For us, the beauty is in the process rather than the end product.
We work with a range of artists and makers to deliver hands-on creative workshops in the gallery for families of all ages - from sculpture building to printmaking. If you’d like to work with us in future, please email email@example.com
