Children's Art Factory is a drop-in art studio for children.
We provide opportunities for young children to explore the world around them by harnessing their innate curiosity with hands-on activities to challenge and inspire them.
We welcome children of all ages, and value and encourage collaboration with children over instruction. Pre-booking your visit is not required.
