Children’s crafting workshops

At Birkhill House boasts dynamic and inventive ways for children to explore their creative impulses and express themselves – with the focus on linking crafting to nature and using as many upcycled and reclaimed materials as possible.

Update, 8th May 2021: Workshops are back on the schedule! Hurrah! Action painting will kick things off on the 5th and 12th of June (see below for more details and booking links) and we will also be launching a donation-only series of workshops for children into the summer. Check back soon for details on those.

Saturday 12th June 2021, 10-11:20am, 12-1:20pm, 2-3:30pm

Action Painting on the 5th sold out so quickly, we’re running it again!

Get wildly experimental with mark making, using an exciting array of equipment. Try out the giant painty pendulum, make spin artworks with a recycled bicycle wheel contraption, experiment with mask & spray paint, stamp, roll and spread paint with objects, invent your own brushes… and more! Run in conjunction with Transform Arts CIC, Lara Armitage and Lara Greene are together again to host this colourful bananza. As always, there will be time to visit with the animals and feed the alpacas a little treat. Big mess, big fun! Dress in old clothes.
