Parent review:

⭐️ "I often take my children to the craft events here during the school holidays. Excellent value for money. Lovely helpful staff who are genuinely interested in what the children are making and offer words of encouragement. I love the fact that children are encouraged to use the gallery and use it for fun activities so they don't think it's boring! My children ask every holiday if we can go to the gallery. Hope we can continue to visit for years to come!"⭐️ 

Every Thursday during the school holidays join us at the Shipley Art gallery for a fun filled drop-in craft day. Get inspired by our exhibitions and come and create with us.

Get Crafty: 18 April ('Let go on a Bug Hunt')

Sculpt your own wire bugs or flowers and make your paper binoculars and go for a bug hunt in our garden. 

Get Crafty: 30 May ('Let's go Fly a Kite')

Create a kite, and test it out in our garden. Or why not pop to Saltwell Park and watch it sore? 

Get Crafty: Summer dates
