ARTBASH After School Workshop facilitates raw creativity through weekly engaging and inspiring art projects.


Each term is themed and linked to current exhibitions, as well as a variety of artists and contemporary topics, issues and festivals. We offer a variety of experimental and skill-based workshops at an age-appropriate level. As well as engaging with the more traditional mediums, children also use a diverse range of recycled materials. The Children’s Scrap Project is our most valuable resource.

Our After-School Workshops run termly in line with the school calendar breaking in school holidays. We offer 18 places per session to allow for true creativity in a safe, nurturing and welcoming environment.

“ARTBASH is the best thing that’s happened to our kids. Their confidence in their own creativity and their courage to pursue different ideas and formats has sky-rocketed since they joined. They look forward to it each week, and we now have a wall full of beautiful works which inspire us to encourage their ideas at home!'”
