Family Takeovers

What better way to spend a summer Saturday than making some creative mess in our courtyard! Family takeovers are back with two hour sessions delivered outdoors by professional artist, providing an opportunity for families to make, create and play together. Tickets can be booked as house hold bubbles and you will be provided will all materials you need on the day.

Please note, we intended to go ahead in most weather and will notify bookers early on the morning of if there is a cancellation due to change in Scot Gov restrictions or unsafe weather. All sessions will take place in our yard and whilst cushions/beanbags will be provided in each square we encourage you to wear a coat and bring a blanket to sit on if it looks wet.

Requirements: open to families with a range of ages. Please note all activity will be designed for children 2+. Baby’s are welcome to come but may not benefit fully from the creative activity.

If we are fully booked please email to join our waiting list. 

Dates: Saturdays 11.30am - 1.30pm

5 & 26 June, 10 & 24 July, 7 & 28 August 2021
