What's On right Now

We have been awarded funding from the Royal Opera House Bridge to develop our education offer around the Arts Award. We will be piloting our new offer from Jul-Nov 2022. We are offerring a limitted number of pilot sessions absolutely FREE! To apply for a funded session for your group or school, drop us and email

How much does it cost?

Prices vary depending on length of sessions, how many artists are involved, material costs, etc. The usual base rate is £100 for a shorter session (up to 1hr), £150 per half day (up to 3 hrs) and £200 per full day (up to 6hrs) this includes preparation time. If your booking doesn't fit exactly into one of these time blocks, we are more than happy to offer extra sessions, drop in activities, or something else to make use of the time paid for. 

I can't possibly afford that!

We understand that budgets are always tight. If yours doesn't quite stretch to one of our sessions, here are few things that might help:

  • We offer discounts on our services to Home Educators - these vary depending on the session but can be up to 30% off

  • Most of our sessions tick some great curriculum boxes across two or more subjects. Why not see if you can split the cost with other departments in your school?

  • We offer discounts to members of the D/deaf community. One of our artists signs BSL to a level 2 standard. We are unable to cover the cost of an interpreter. But we are happy to discuss different ways of funding this or to tailor our sessions so as not to need an interpreter. 

  • We are always on the look out for organisations to partner with! Maybe we can work with you to develop a project or some new sessions. Sometimes it is possible to access outside funding for creative educational partnership work or sometimes we are able to offer a discount if you are willing to be our guinea pigs! Drop us an email and we can have a chat.

  • Why not see if you can get a local business to sponsor a workshop from us? Lots of businesses are looking for ways to fulfill their corporate social responsibility and this could be it! Many of our sessions create great photo opportunities and creative outcomes. We are also more than happy to do social media posts etc. to shout about any sponsorhip.

  • Still can't afford us? Get in touch anyway, we might not be able to help but we'll certainly see what we can do. Money should not be a barrier to creative learning or having a great time.
