learning zone


The Learning Zone provides a creative space for children, young people and families to engage with our learning programme. Throughout the year, workshops and activities will be scheduled with opportunities to learn about printmaking and get creative in our new education room.

Groups will be able to visit the Archive Room, look at plates, prints and drawings from the Archive, visit exhibitions in our galleries, discuss the artworks and in response to their visits try out printing techniques for themselves!

Watch this space for updates!

For opportunities for schools, colleges and community groups to get involved please see For Teachers & Pupils or Outreach and In-house Learning.
