Education

The Hub is committed to supporting learning for people of all ages. We offer a variety of craft, design and dance workshops and events throughout the year.

Our workshops range from craft and design and visual arts to dance and movement and we can work with you to develop a bespoke workshop or project that meets your specific creative or curriculum needs.

All workshops can include a talk and tour around our galleries, along with activities designed to accompany the current exhibitions. Alternatively, we can deliver workshops or longer projects in your educational setting.

Printmaking Workshop

As an ongoing option throughout the year, various printmaking options are available, including mono, lino, drypoint or collagraph printing techniques.

This session works well if the pupils are working on a specific theme at school and want to explore it in more detail with different media. Schools can either bring their own inspiration with them if they are following a specific topic or can be inspired by our current programme of exhibitions and showcases.

Ceramics

For an introduction to 3D crafts, we are offering ceramic workshops with an experienced creative practitioner. The workshops are based on hand building techniques including coiling, slab and sculpture and can be tailored to fit topics and themes explored by the pupils or using our current exhibition programme for inspiration to design and create artwork through observation and making.

62 Group: Iterating Form and Texture with the 62 Group’s Handling Collection

Explore the tactile world of textiles through a workshop that delves into iterations of form and texture using the 62 Group’s handling collection. Students will study the samples through observation and touch. They will begin by creating studies from white paper that respond to texture and form without the distraction of colour or patterns. Exercises will challenge the abstraction of the observed techniques through scale, 3D forms and materials.

Available Apr - Jul 2024

KS3, 4 & 5

Explore Drawing: Experimenting with materials, media & techniques

This workshop focuses on exploring both observational and experimental drawing techniques. Using our main gallery exhibition as inspiration, students will begin to build familiarity and confidence in using a range of media and materials to create their own work. Placing an emphasis on growing confidence and creativity, we encourage participation and experimentation from each student, giving them skills and ideas which they can bring back to the classroom.
