HAYDAYS workshops

'Making and doing' is a vital part of enjoying culture, so we offer a vast and varied programme of workshops for children, teenagers and adults. With sessions including creative writing, circus skills, animation and projection mapping, coding and Ethiopian dance, there is something for everyone, of all ages and abilities.

You could hack the web, legally, with Stemettes, drum with Landing Mané, quick-fire sketch with House of Illustration, learn animation and projection mapping with MASH cinema, build stories with Steven Camden, bust a move with the Ethiopian dance company Destino, create your own world with illustrator Laura Carlin, go head over heels with Splatch Circus, or cook on an open fire with Rooted Forest School. With so much going on, you have free rein to be adventurous and express your creativity by trying something new at HAYDAYS.
