Mini Makers — Summer Edition

Join artist and teacher Antoine Genevier in an exploratory play session inspired by the season. In these special sessions, we welcome children aged 6 months to 8 years with a variety of child-led activities and art-making, including building and painting with cardboard and other materials, sensory play, drawing, and more!

The sessions are designed and facilitated by artists Antoine Genevier and Jennifer Mesrie, two experienced artist practitioners with backgrounds in art education for Early Years. They work together to develop the sessions based on a monthly theme. Each session will have different activity stations for the children to try out. They include large-scale cooperative painting projects, printmaking with natural objects, sensory object play, and much more! Children can move from station to station to explore a variety of materials to draw, paint, build, and make, including colours, play dough, and recycled and natural materials.

Mini Makers runs weekly from 10.30 am – 2.00 pm. Families can come and go as they please at any time. The sessions are bookable and also available to drop in. Full-price tickets are £5 per child, with a concession ticket available for £1 to qualifying families. Ticketholders can access Pitzhanger Manor for free on the day (Entry to the exhibition in Pitzhanger Gallery requires a separate ticket). They can also get a free babyccino and discounted coffee and cake at Pitzhanger Pantry near the Walpole Park playground. Make a day of it and book your place now!
