More information

As these are family workshops, children must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the workshop. We will prioritise families living in North Kensington and the sessions are suitable for primary aged children. Each household will have a space in which to work, and we advise maintaining social distance from others for the duration of the session. We recommend adults wear face coverings for the inside workshops and encourage the use of reusable masks, however, we will have disposable ones available on the day if needed.
