Teach Meet

Our Teach Meet sessions are aimed at Primary/Secondary school teachers, TAs and Art Coordinators. Through this friendly, supportive group we share ideas, advice on art materials, and lots of tips and advice on how to enhance a creative curriculum.

With activity ideas for all ages, using materials you probably already have in school, you will be inspired by ideas to take back to the classroom and run with your pupils.

Teach Meet sessions are run by Ami Hallgarth, Schools Programme Manager and guest artists. We will be happy to show you around the building and discuss individual enquiries about school visits.

We’ll have plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits to keep us going!
