Children can paint, collage and draw from the colourful patchwork pieces made for the ‘Quilt Garden’ community patchwork project, inspired by the variety of botanical patterns, geometric shapes, textures and colours.

Adults and children have been busily working on ‘Quilt Garden’ with textile artist Katherine May over the winter and she’s been collecting their stories through clothing and textiles. We will be displaying the quilt in May and are inviting even more children to get involved by documenting the ‘patches’ through their artwork.

Our holiday workshops are most suitable for children aged 5 – 11, although younger children are very welcome, as long as a parent or carer works alongside them.
We receive no grant-funding for our children’s holiday programmes, so we ask everyone to please try to make a donation to help cover costs.
