  1. Hi there, we’ve not been to art space yet – I just wondered if there are any activities over the summer holiday suitable for my 6 year old son and myself? Thanks, Liz Wood

    1. Hi Elizabeth

      This year we’re not running formal holiday art activity workshops, instead we are including activities in our Creative Tuesday drop in sessions.
      we’re open from 12 noon till 9pm on Tuesdays.
      You are welcome to drop in any time we are open(check the opening times page on here for August opening times), and do your own thing, or there will be an activity available on Tuesday afternoons: last week we made musical instruments from Junk, this Tuesday (4th August) fabric and sewing activities are going on, however the Junk instrument making will still be available.
      ArtSpace is free, however if you can make a donation towards materials it is greatly appreciated.

      Jane on behalf of ArtSpace.
