Work with an Artist

Get creative with a local artist.

As part of our Artsmark offer we work with local artists Alan Birch and Jill Randall to bring you workshops exploring a range of techniques such as printmaking, engraving, wire sculpture and observational drawing. You will be inspired by our art and museum exhibitions or the natural environment to create work to take back to school.
