What's On

Under The Sea Season

Throughout August we’re going nautical with a month full of Under The Sea themed workshops and courses for children and adults.

Dip your toe in and try out a new printmaking technique, have some fishy fun with vinyl stickers, join a week long summer school class, or make a lovely gift for a friend. It’ll be as refreshing as taking a dip in the sea on a hot summer’s day.
