Mini Makers — Summer Edition


3 August 2023

Mini Makers — Summer Edition


Celebrate the summer sunshine as Mini Makers returns in July for two very special summertime sessions! 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!

Your children will build their confidence, creativity, and fine motor skills while making a mess that you won’t have to clean up at the end!

It is advisable to wear suitable clothing as Mini Makers sessions will be messy. You may wish to bring a spare change of clothes. Although much care is taken to plan safe and suitable activities for your children to engage and explore independently, please remember that children must be supervised by their accompanying adults at all times and never be left alone.

Date and Time

10.30 am – 2.00 pm


The Rickyard
Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery
