Our school workshops are designed to provide a flexible framework for schools to interact with various elements of Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery, meaning there’s something new to see with each visit! Whether you want a workshop focused on the architectural elements of the manor, the artwork on display in the gallery, or the history of the manor and the surrounding area, including the life of Sir John Soane, there’s a workshop for you!
