Be inspired by our artists and create your own adventures in art. With workshops in creative crafts from animation, cartoons and illustrations to model making there is something for all the family to create.

Discover the secrets behind the fascinating history of the escape artist’s pencil that RAF pilots carried with them during the war to guide them safely home, in our Secret Pencil Exhibition.

Find out exactly how we get colour into a pencil today and let the kids imaginations run free in the Kids Art Studio. Relax and have a cuppa and a sticky bun at our riverside location with views of Catbells.

Fun for all ages! We hope to welcome you soon.
