Young Makers Club

On Thursdays during term-time

The Horsebridge Young Makers Club is an informal weekly after-school club where young people can learn about different mediums and explore their own art style. There is a different topic each week with an art or craft project to make and take home.  

Young Makers Club Sessions can get messy so please make sure that your little artist is wearing something that is ok to get messy in. 

Young Makers Club are drop-off sessions. For safeguarding reasons and room space, we ask that only children aged 6-11 attend sessions. We have a gallery space and shop on our ground floor that parents and guardians can explore while children are in the session. 

Our sessions offer an inclusive space for young people with disabilities, learning differences and mental health needs and are delivered by experienced staff. If you would like to discuss how we can accommodate your child's needs please email us. 

Suggested donation £5 per child but please pay what you are able to.
