Join us every month from August onwards for a range of art workshops inspired by Ron Mueck's amazing sculptures. There really is something for everyone.
We have everything a family would want for a great day out.
Our free to visit Playroom is open again to drop into whenever you want with art supplies for kids. (Big kids can join in too!)
