School Workshops

'Taking Centre Stage' - Primary workshop with artist Pui Lee.

Respond directly to Beatriz Olabarrieta's exhibition Plot Bunny. Learn about the ideas behind the artists' installations and how artworks can be used as inspiration for creating experimental writing. Pupils will make sculptures, write short pieces of text and perform the text in the exhibition space.

This workshop can be used to complete Arts Award Discover or Explore - please contact for more details, prices and availability.

The workshop can be run as a full day or half day depending on the needs of the group.
