Main Space

This Summer we are handing over our Main Gallery Space to our younger visitors, to create work for the exhibition Upside Down, Inside Out. Over five weeks, groups of children and young people will take part in artist led workshops, to make new work as part of this growing exhibition. Visitors to the gallery will also have the opportunity to interact and add their artwork too!

All the workshops are listed below – use the Eventbrite links to book, call us on 023 9277 8080 or email

Also – remember we’ve got MINI MAKERS for Toddlers to 5s every Wednesday throughout the summer at the new time of 11am from 23 July for just £3 – find out more here.
