Also, why not let the kids get messy at ours this Easter with a fun range of creative workshops? Aimed at children aged 7-11 and 12-16, the Easter Art Club offers an exciting range of workshops designed to help budding young creatives develop artistic skills. We provide opportunities for the children to work in professional Maker Space and work alongside our teaching artists. Workshops include making and painting their very own ceramic mug in our Ceramics Studio, or learning how to draw animals in the popular Japanese fantasy style of manga in our comic drawing workshop. Other events include playing and exploring with paint, discovering the beauty of Japanese calligraphy, and building self-portraits using clay!

For those who want to get a little less messy, our Coffee House will be offering a special menu of tasty hot cross buns and chocolate delights! Visiting over the Easter holidays will also offer a wonderful opportunity to visit our brand-new exhibitions. These include stepping into an other-worldly exhibition of soft, vibrant textile works in the exhibition Interwoven by Saroj Patel. Visitors can expect a heart-warming feast for the eyes, with a flurry of colour and textures, hanging, bulging and bursting throughout the gallery!

You'll also find Wakefield-based artist Andy Singleton’s intricate sculptural installation Internal, made from just cut paper, suspended in the beautiful setting of the Tiled Gallery, accompanied by moving projections and sound.
