This year at Kettle’s Yard, they are practising seeing things from another point of view and exploring EMPATHY. This activity will help you to use your imagination to think how the world might look and feel to a spider.
Join us for an evening of making art and exploring ideas, experiencing the Kettle’s Yard collection, Lucie Rie exhibition and playfully exploring ceramic practice through the theme of art & identity.
Following an exploration of the Kettle's Yard House or temporary exhibitions, get creative with an artist-led workshop inspired by themes, ideas or materials explored.
These sessions can be tailored for your specific class or learning outcomes and are delivered with our Learning team and one of our associate artist facilitators. Sessions run for around 2 - 2.5 hours and are £180 per class (£230 for fee-paying schools).

Our workshops for EYFS are one hour long and will allow your pupils to experience the wonder of the natural world in the beautiful space of the Botanic Garden. You can combine a workshop with spending time in the Garden to picnic or explore on a self-led basis. The workshops support many areas of the EYFS framework, particularly Understanding the World, Literacy and Communication and Language.
This kit contains all the material you will need to make paint using pigments and a medium just as artists did (before ready-mix paint!). You can construct an experiment for students to explore the role of science in both the artist’s and the scientist’s workshop with reference to the technical analysis of the Renaissance painting, Cupid and Psyche by Jacopo del Sellaio. There is material provided with the kit that supports each of the suggested activities below.

Stories in Art: Words and Pictures
What is art? How can we understand it? We will look at 3 different artworks together and think about how artists tell stories using pictures instead of words, using the paintings to inspire our own creative writing.
