 Family Art and Creative Sessions at Park in the Past.

Join us in our new art studio at Park in the Past ( Fagle Lane, Hope, LL12 9HB ) and in our woodland Druids Grove.

Our Family Art Workshops are a great way for the whole family to spend time together being creative and having fun.

We teach in a way that encompases all age groups and abilities.

We provide high quality art materials and tools for use during our workshops to ensure you can get the most out of your session, and come away with a piece of artwork or new skills to be proud of.

 In our historical art workshops we focus on using Earth Pigments, and various historical paint binders such as egg, Casein and various natural gums and honey.

Our group activity sessions also make for unusual Birthday Parties - for all ages 7 years and over! - If you would like to book a Birthday Party session, just let us know.  Contact Here    


Please note, we do not cater for unaccompanied children.
