New! Toddler Outdoor Art Club

Workshops that bring art, nature and creativity together that take place come rain or shine. or children under 5 and their grown ups.

Exciting news! Toddler Art Club has changed. We are moving to a Saturday and moving outdoors.

New Toddler Outdoor Art Club now every Saturday from September.

Free, every Saturday 10:15-11:15 & 11:30-12:30.

New sessions designed especially for little explorers set in our beautiful park. Try sculpting with mud, painting in puddles, making dens, hunting for bugs and lots more led by artists and forest school practitioners.

These sessions are designed with under 5s in mind but the whole family are welcome too.

We will be in the park whatever the weather so make sure you come prepared. Children and adults will need to wear appropriate clothing for wet weather - wellies and all-in-one rainsuits or jackets and trousers. Plus an extra set of dry clothes for going home in just in case. 

Booking essential - Booking opens the Monday before Saturday's session.

Dont worry Mondays will still be bursting with things to do for toddlers. The Toddler Atelier is a free, drop-in space every Monday from 10am-3pm. A place where toddlers and pre-schoolers can get messy, play creatively and follow their own interests. Every week The Toddler Atelier is full of materials for children to choose from; from paint or clay one week to cardboard or sand the next.
