Choose Your Words: Far Off Places

Gallery session on Monday 1 June. For home-educated students aged 8-11. BOOK FROM MARCH 2020.

Duration 2 hours (10.30am-12.30pm)

(Please note that on Monday 1 June 2019, we will also be running an Inspiration for Creative Writing: Dramatic Monologues session for students aged 12-16. Duration 4 hours (10:30-14:30).

Students will explore this magnificent treasure house with a published children’s author. They will engage with the precious paintings and objects, and, using their author’s notebooks, they will write some short pieces to enhance their vocabulary, descriptive powers and use of dialogue. They can develop and polish these pieces further at home.

Please note:

  • Parents/carers are welcome to accompany students to the workshops, but only children of the specified age will be permitted – children of other ages must be taken elsewhere, and you can explore the galleries at leisure with trails.
  • Sessions are free, but a £10 per child deposit will be taken upon booking, and refunded upon attendance of the workshop. Cancellation with less than 14 days’ notice will mean a refund is forfeit.
  • For workshops that involve messy materials, accompanying adults will be expected to assist.
