Families

Learn and have fun with us as a family – and help us to see our artworks with fresh eyes. 

Pre-school children can join in creative play with Mini-Studio while older children can enjoy a range of practical workshops during half-terms and holidays.

Mini Studio is a creative session for one to five year olds and their grownups.  Explore the Sainsbury Centre inside and out, meet artworks and use lots of wonderful materials for open ended play. Younger siblings are welcome to join in.  Be prepared for messy experiments and outdoor fun.  Mini Studio takes place on the first Thursday of each month, starting Thursday 5th March at 10.15am. £8 per child, £5 concessions.

The first Sunday of the month, join us for Family Sundays, an artist-led drop-in workshop FREE for all the family. Dates for your diary, 2 February, 1 March and 5 April, 11am-2pm.  No booking required.

Every Saturday from 18 January to 25 April, 10.30am-11.15am, come and cook up a story in the gallery at Story Pot, our FREE storytelling workshop for families. 

We love to work with families as we gain so much from the individual and particular understandings that they bring. Children learn how different materials behave when twisted or stroked or dropped or drawn on or drawn with. Parents bring their knowledge of stories and traditions within their own family.  For these reasons, the Sainsbury Centre looks forward to welcoming your family.
